Windows 10 breaks VMWare Workstation 10.0.7


I took the Windows 10 plunge and it seems to have broken my VMWare 10.0.7 install. The VM's fire up, and I can't get internet access.

In the past, I've fiddled around with the VMWare network settings, so I may have a mess on my hands. How do I go about fixing the connection issue?

Thanks in advance.

This is why VMware released VMware Workstation 12 Pro quickly, to support Windows 10 as a host!

because feedback was Windows 10, broke Workstation 10 and 11.

Awesome - time to restore from backup. Maybe I should have done my homework before upgrading.

Anyways - thanks all.
