Yesterday, I updated my computer from Windows 8 to 8.1. I have VMWare Workstation 10 running Windows XP on this computer and prior to the update I had no issues connecting to my network. However, since updating, I haven't been able to connect to any network and I'm getting the following error:
The network bridge on device VMnet0 is not running. The firtual machine will not be able to communicate with the host or with other machines on your network.
Failed to connect virtual device Ethernet0
I've checked all of my settings which currently have my network adapter set for a bridged connection and under device status "connected" is checked.
Not really sure where to go from here, but after doing some research I have seen that others users have reported getting this error when updating the OS (any OS, not windows 8 specifically) of the host computer.
