While setting up the new GNS3 1.4 Virtual Machine with VMware Workstation 12 Player, I ran into an interesting error that was preventing me from completing the installation.
Thankfully the fix is fairly straight forward and requires that we edit the VMware Workstation preferences file.
- Open preferences.ini in your text editor of choice
- Add or edit the following line, changing the path to where your virtual machines are stored
prefvmx.defaultVMPath = "C:\Path\To\My\VMs"
- And that’s it. Save the ini and restart the GNS3 Setup Wizard.
