I have a win7 64bit VM running on Vmware 7 workstation on a host (win7 64bit). The vm was able to see the network just fine, but now it cannot. I was running 6.5.3 and installed vmware 7 then rebuilt the vm. still nothing. The vm is set for bridge on vnet0.

Any thoughts?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Try switching it to NAT and see if it then works, then back to Bridge.

This solution was helpful. For VmWare v7.1.2 I switched from NAT to bridge, re-enabled network discovery(it should ask automatically if you are in network window) in windows 8.1 and all my local workgroup computers showed up. – trevorc Jul 3 '15 at 3:27

This may be overkill for your setup, but you might find some interesting pointers here.

The VMWare system has never been too nice with letting your host system talk directly to the clients ... Good luck! Hope this helps!
