VMWare Player slow shutdown in Windows 7 Enterprise
Posted on 2010-11-10
I am running Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit and VMware Player version 3.1.2.
The virtual PC works fine up to the point where I shut down. After the virtual PC is shut down, the host is unusable for the next 5 minutes. Everything slows down almost to a halt.
I'm using a fairly big image(23GB). I always put the PC to sleep by closing the vmware player, I never use the shutdown-button in the guest-OS.
Are there any compatibility issues with vmware player and windows 7 64-bit? Are there any options that I could set to make the shutdown speedier that don't affect the performance?
