This works with VMware Player 14, a free download from VMware, you can get it here:

The new VMWare tools from a good poster zzmadd is attached to the bottom of this post:



You need to enable root to run the vmware utility, here's how:
Code: Select all
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204012  


Then you need to add the following to your VMs VMX file at the bottom:
Code: Select all
 svga.minVRAMSize = 8388608 


Now you need to change the resolution and here's how:

Code: Select all
Open Terminal, then change directory by entering cd "/Library/Application Support/VMware Tools/", include the ""s because the directory names have spaces in them.

Now you need to enter SU and then enter the password you set for root.
  
Once you do that you enter:  ./vmware-resolutionSet 1920 1080.

The 1920 is the height and the 1080 is the width.  Set it to what you need.

You will not want to go full screen, in my testing full screen resets the resolution back to default.

Now shutdown and restart the VM to test your new resolution.

Did you configure it according to the post for the VM?

Same here. I've followed the instructions carefully but VMWare keeps restarting and never goes to the setup screen. I have an Ryzen 3 1300X if that helps.

Are you using VMWare Player 12 or VMWorkstation? Did you upgrade the hardware on the VM if you're using Workstation?

Using VMWare Player 12

Followed the guide provided line by line, even used the exact same parameters (RAM, CPUs, etc). It's worth noting that this is the exact same error I got with the 10.12.6 versions floating around.
Really bummed that this doesn't work, I needed an updated Xcode to work on my main PC, and will be instead forced to use it on a 5 year old laptop with little memory that struggles to emulate the phone :/ Thanks for the effort though, if you need more info, I can post the full log.

Hi, please split the file into several parts because it's the 6th time i unload it and I always get some decompression errors at different points of the file if you divide it if anything else we should just download the corrupt part, thank you

I need someone to download VMware Player 14 and install the VM but when asked to upgrade the VM choose Yes and then try to run.
