VMWare Workstation 6

I can't get a device using USB 1.1 to work properly with a VM within VMWARE workstation 6 under windows/XP. A regular flash thumbdrive works, but the Sage 960B tester does not communicate with its configuration application running in the VM. USB 2.0 support is supposed to work with VMWARE. I can't get support out of VMWARE.

The sage works fine in the base windows/XP outside of a VM.

    This is a brand new PC with USB 2.0 ports. It's a VMWARE problem, not a hardware problem. The trouble is that the level of USB support is not detailed for customers. They say they support USB 2.0, but only for certain devices it seems.

  • Derek Dokoto Apr 11, 2009

    already tried it, but it didn't change anything. It's not the speed, but the software protocol that is incompatible. As before, vendor never tested in the context of a VM. Meanwhile we bought the ethernet adaptor and it works beautifully in the VM over ethernet rather than USB. We are so disappointed in VMWare's technical support on this issue. They were not able to give us ANY information to give to the vendor to help resolve the problem with USB usage.

I know this is an old topic but just in case...VMware does support USB 2.0 but they don't tell you that you need to close VMware Workstation down and navigate to your Virtual Machine folder usually in My Documents and click on the folder of your virtual machine. Then open the .vmx file in wordpad and add the following line:

ehci.present = "TRUE"

Save and then close. Restart VMware Workstation and try your machine. I hope this helps.

    The support that I've received from them has been not too helpful either. I'm glad you found a solution that worked for you.

My macbook shows a white screen and a sound only and after that nothing happens


JUST TRY TO FOLLOW THE STEPS IT WILL BE VERY HELPFUL
Many computer shoppers choose to buy a Mac not only to use OS X, but Windows as well. That is one strong advantage that Macs have in the Mac vs PC war. Apple computers are capable of running Windows, either through Bootcamp or virtual machines.
So, why aren't Windows PC's capable of running OS X? Well, Windows PC's are capable of running OS X. But, it is against Apple's licensing agreement to do so. Thus, this article is intended for educational and demonstration purposes only. If you want to run OS X the best way possible, get a Mac.
*In order for this to work, your computer must have a processor that supports virtualization. If it does not, you may receive errors. For the most part, any newer processor lines: Core 2 Duo, Quad Core, and Core i7 should all work fine.
But, don't expect to not get errors if you are using an older Pentium 4 machine. The processor must be Intel and not AMD*
Because we will be installing OS X on top of Windows through a virtual machine, the first step is to get some virtual machine software. For this demo, we will be using VMware's Workstation 7.
If you do not feel like purchasing Workstation 7 at this time, you can get a limited trial here. The download may take a good half an hour to complete. Workstation is a 512MB file.
Upon download, go ahead and install Workstation 7 onto your computer. The installation process is very simple just launch the installer, and the VMware installer will guide you through the rest.
One thing to note, when it asks your if you want to do a custom install or a typical install, choose typical install. After the installer finishes, restart your computer
Now that you have Workstation 7 installed, you need a pre-configured VMware virtual machine file to install Snow Leopard on top of. Download this file (alt download) and save it to your desktop.
After you have the pre-configured virtual machine file downloaded, you will need to extract the files using WinRAR or another archive utility. If you do not have an archive utility, you can get WinRAR here.
Note: This file is just a disk image framework, no viruses or anything like that. VMware Workstation uses the disk image format to save and contain virtual machines.
Time to start installing Snow Leopard. Launch VMware Workstation by using the path Start > All Programs > VMware > VMware Workstation. Open up the VMware disk image framework that you just downloaded and extracted.
Select File > Open. Navigate to your Snowy_VM folder, open it, open up the next folder that says "Mac OS X 10.6 Server (experimental).vmwarevm, and choose the 2KB file that is named Mac OS X Server 10.6 (experimental). Click the open button to load the virtual machine.
From the Mac OS X Server tab in the VMware Workstation window, click the edit virtual machine settings icon. You may adjust the hard drive size, memory, etc, to your liking.
Select CD/DVD (IDE) and under the Connection settings, select Use ISO Image File. Click the Browse button and navigate to the Darwin_Snow.iso which is located in your Snowy_VM folder. Click the Open button to select the virtual machine.
Now it's time to power on the virtual machine. Click the Power on this virtual machine option. As soon as the process starts, hold down the F8 key on your keyboard. You should be prompted with a boot menu screen.
If you have not done so already, insert your OS X Snow Leopard Install DVD into your computer's CD/DVD drive. So far, you have loaded a workable virtual machine and framework into VMware Workstation.
Now it's time to actually install Snow Leopard onto that virtual machine disk image. You should see some settings icons located at the bottom right portion of the VMware window. Right-click the icon that looks like a CD and choose settings from the pop up menu.
Go back into the boot screen and select the option C Boot from DVD. Press the F8 button on your keyboard for advanced options and type "-v" without the quotes and hit enter. Now, VMware Workstation should boot your Snow Leopard install disc. It may take a couple of minutes to load
That's all there is to it. You should now be at the normal Snow Leopard install screen. Click continue on the first screen that comes up. On the second screen, click the utilities option in the install window and select disk utility. Use disk utility to change the hard drive format type to OS X Extended (Journaled). Exit disk utility and let OS X install completely.
Upon install of Snow Leopard, your virtual machine will restart. After it restarts you will need to do a couple of things to get into Snow Leopard. Select CD/DVD options, like you did before, and use the Use ISO Image File option.

Hi,
Please try this with windows XP


Make sure you:
Turned off any Firewall you have on the PC.
Not running the update in Safe Mode.
Not to perform any other work on your PC.
Make sure the phone is fully charged (important)
Do not update from a PC where you have limited rights. Eg. Internet Cafe, Work etc.
Prefer Laptop as if you have electricity dropped you will have some extra battery and wont harm your phone.
Use only one USB port for you Omnia update, the best one it works for you. Do not try multiple.


Steps used for updating under Windows XP (32 bit).
  1. Make the Install Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 (once)
  2. Make Install the Samsung Modem Driver XP (once)
  3. http://rapidshare.com/files/179674742/MODEM_DRIVER_FOR_XP.zip
  4. Reboot the PC.
  5. After the first 2 steps try to disconnect your Omnia from USB and connect it back on. Repeat it 1-2 times so the PC can recognize the phone.
    Leave the phone connected for about 10-15 minutes. If it disconnects by itself most probably you have to repeat the procedure from 1st step.
    It is advised to reboot your PC also.
  6. Make sure that have backup all your important stuff (contacts, pictures etc).
  7. Switch OFF the phone by holding the Power button for ~5 seconds.
  8. Run the updater. (Works the same way for Original or Cooked ROMs)
  9. Switch ON the phone again by holding the Power button.
  10. Press START and happy flashing. Do not move your phone or the USB wire as it might fail during flashing.
  11. Wait until the updater shows JOB DONE! DO NOT DISCONNECT BEFORE.
  12. Disconnect your phone.
  13. Leave the phone to reboot 2 times, calibrate screen and finish the start-up procedure.
  14. Enjoy the new firmware.

This is for windows 7 and vista

Things you'll need on Vista:
VMware Workstation (latest will work)

Microsoft Windows XP CD or .ISO image and the serial key

2gb of free disk spaceSafety Tips before starting:

Use the ones that mentioned for Windows XP.

Make sure you turn off the USB on the Windows Mobile Device

Center.How-to disable it. Go to Windows Mobile Device Center:

Mobile Settings -> Connection Settings -> Untick "Allow USB Connections".

After flashing tick it back.Let's start:
  • First install VMware's Workstation. You can get a trial version at http://www.vmware.com/
  • If you have an .ISO image of your Windows XP CD on your hard disk like I do, you won't need the CD, otherwise you'll need it. If you don't have the image, put the CD into your CD/DVD-ROM.
  • Run the workstation.
  • Go to FILE -> NEW -> VIRTUAL MACHINE and choose TYPICAL. On the next tab select the source from where you want to install a virtual Windows XP operating system (CD or image).
  • On the next tab, press next. When the dialog appears, choose YES.
  • Now enter a name for your virtual XP machine and choose a location where you want to save the machine - it's good to have at least 2gb of free space!
  • On the nex tab, I've chosen 2.5gb. I think that's enough, if you wish only to flash your ROM. You can choose to install the machine to a single file or splitted. I've chosen single.
  • On the next tab, click Customize Hardware button and select "USB Controller". Make sure High-Speed USB 2.0 and Auto connect USB devices are checked. Press OK, then press FINISH.
  • Maybe you'll get a warning from VMware but don't bother, just skip it.
  • The Windows installation process should follow. The installation took on my PC for about 25min.
  • When the setup has finished, you can normally run and use Windows XP via WMware.
  • Update your XP machine via Windows Update, reboot and start flashing.
Flashing:
  1. Make the Install Microsoft ActiveSync 4.5 (once)
  2. Make Install the Samsung Modem Driver XP (once)
  3. Reboot the PC.
  4. After the first 2 steps try to disconnect your Omnia from USB and connect it back on. Repeat it 1-2 times so the PC can recognize the phone.
    Leave the phone connected for about 10-15 minutes. If it disconnects by itself most probably you have to repeat the procedure from 1st step.

I have installed virtual pc in windows vista. in virtual pc i ave installed windows xp. in virtual pc my usb ports are not working


Virtual PC for Windows does not support USB devices (other than a mouse and keyboard ... which are not actually emulated via USB, but are simply "used" through the host) ... but just to confirm the "official" statement of this:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/824511/en-us

Unfortunately, Microsoft did NOT add USB support in Virtual PC 2007 (a widely anticipated addition that simply didn't happen).

VMWare Server DOES support USB devices (through the host) with some exceptions. From the documentation: "... Modems and certain streaming data devices, such as speakers and Web cams, do not work properly." You may want to read the details of using USB devices with a VMWare virtual machine starting on page 232 here: http://www.vmware.com/pdf/server_vm_manual.pdf

You can download Virtual Server for free here (You'll need to register and request a free key ... a painless process): http://www.vmware.com/download/server/

see heres the thing when using VM-Ware, VM-Ware doesnt use drivers for your physical hardware, because it emulates the hardware that is seen in the hardware information of your system preferences.

So installing even drivers for the "emulated" hardware will not work, as VM-Ware uses its own drivers for the hardware, which are included with the VM-Ware Tools, if that doesnt seem to work, you may want to contact VM-Ware support, as they may have a better solutiuon.

On vista i have vmware 6


Your Guest OS uses a Virtual VGA adaptor. As with a normal computer it needs drivers. This usually is installed through VMware Tools. (VMware tells your guest OS there are all kinds of virtual devices. They don't exist physically but need their drivers since VMware uses the virtual devices to handle the Host PCs physical devices.

In order to install VMware Tools, go to:
VM > Install VMWare Tools.

Remember that you need Administrator rights.

Need more help? See the link below:
[Installing VMware Tools]

This should do the trick, let me know if this solved your problem.
