Running Arch Linux, I've just updated the host (
pacman -Syyu) and VMWare Workstation (14.0.0), and I now get the following error when I launch any VM no matter how many free memory I have or how many times I reboot:
Not enough physical memory is available to power on this virtual machine with its configured settings.
To fix this problem, increase the amount of physical memory for all virtual machines to 2130 MB or adjust the additional memory settings to allow more virtual machine memory to be swapped.
It is possible that native applications and/or services have locked down memory which could be preventing the virtual machine from launching. Shutting down unnecessary applications or services may free enough memory to launch this virtual machine.
If you were able to power on this virtual machine on this host computer in the past, try rebooting the host computer. Rebooting may allow you to use slightly more host memory to run virtual machines.
How to make it work?
