"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

How large did you set the memory in the VM to ?

The Host OS, must have some memory, and also a VMEM swap file is create on the disk equal to memory in the VM.

So do you have enough free space for the swap file?

also, did you optimize the settings for VMware Workstation ?

Edit > Preferences > Memory select How much host RAM should the system be able to reserve for all running virtual machines.

The best option, is the first - Fit all virtual machine memory into reserve host RAM.
