Today when I opened VMWare Workstation 12, I got a message about an update.  I tried to install it, but it failed.  The second time it failed again.  I restarted and tried again, and for the third time it failed, so after closing and reopening VMWare I clicked the Remind me later link.  But when I opened a VM, it had no Internet connectivity, and I got a message:

Could not connect 'Ethernet.0' to virtual network 'VMnet8'.

Any suggestions on how I can fix this problem?
