I installed Linux, Windows XP and Chrome OS in VMware Workstation 7 and in every OS the USB host doesn't work. When I start some of the Operating Systems this message shows up:
Host USB device connections disabled
The connection to the VMware USB Arbitration Service was unsuccessful. Please check the status of this service in the Microsoft Management Console.
What can I do? What do I need to install to make the USB host work? I use Windows 7 as the host OS.
EDIT: if you have some programs from Sony or Sony Ericsson installed, go to Device Manager, then Drivers and set the certificate to Microsoft. See this:
