When I open a Windows Server 2003 VM using VMware Player, there's an error message:
–§– Software virtualization is incompatible with long mode on this platform. Disabling long mode. Without long mode support, the virtual machine will not be able to run 64bit code. For more details see http://vmware.com/info?id=152.
The link above brings us to a VMware article offering the download for Processor Check for 64-Bit Compatibility. Running, the processor check, it shows that there's no problems:
Why is VMware giving the error "incompatible with long mode" then?
How do we fix this error?
(If relevant, Vmware player is on Windows 8.1 64 bit with processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4510U CPU @ 2.00GHz, 2601 Mhz, 2 Cores, 4 Logical Processors.)
