VMware Fusion: Cannot connect to a valid peer process

I ran VMware Fusion 10 on macOS, and got this error when starting a VM.
Cannot connect to a valid peer process
找不到可以连接的有效对等进程

I googled, most guys says to trust developer from Preferences.app, but I’ve already trusted.

I checked process list, only:

I tried this on another working mac:

Those processes are started by /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/Library/services/services.sh.

In this file, find

Uncomment those two lines, and re-run, check “/tmp/debug”:

Verbose output

Compare signatures

I Googled again and found https://communities.vmware.com/thread/584909 saying unload some kernel extensions might work.

I remember VMware Fusion turned not working days after I installed VirtualBox and rebooted, so I remove VirtualBox.app and unload all useless extensions:

No error now.

I saw “Unable to create the installation media” (无法创建安装介质) when creating VM right after download macOS High Sierra installer from Mac App Store.

To solve this:

You can see an installation image named InstallESD is mounted.
Just eject this whole disk and retry VMware Fusion creation.

Windows 10 Shared folder hang in VMware Fusion.
According to @steve goddard, this is caused by Microsoft upgrades destroying registry settings.

I wrote a VBScript check and fix the registry.
