i'm using vmware workstation 8. I can not bridge my network adapter. I reinstalled a virtual machine and chose Bridged. When i view Virtual network editor, there is no bridged vmnet. I have NAT vmnet8 and host-only vmnet1, and vmnet0 says Host-only. I changed nic's to a dlink dfe538tx from an onboard Realtek PCIe nic. I am still getting this error occured: Cannot change network to bridged: There are no un-bridged host network adapters. Reinstallation of vmware didn't solve the problem either. Any assistance would be appreciated, RuRat
Well, I have an answer, but you're not going to like it.
As VMware Workstation 8 is designed to work only on Windows Vista or Windows 7, and Windows 8 support was not introduced until version 9, You have no choice but to upgrade.
Unfortunately, you can no longer get Workstation 9, and Workstation 11 is the only version available to buy, and the only version with Windows 10 support.
