Resolved Issues

  • In some cases upon starting a virtual machine, the USB arbitration service might fail to start on systems that do not have a device identified as USBFDO-0 and prevent the use of USB devices in the virtual machine. The following error message appears, "Host USB device connections disabled". For this release, the USB arbitration service is updated to start whenever a USB device exists even if no devices meet this criteria.
  • When a host system failure occurs during a virtual machine disk operation, attempting to power on the virtual machine or mount the virtual disk using the VMware Disk Mount utility causes the following error messages to appear, " Cannot open the disk... The specified virtual disk needs repair" and "Error reading volume information. Please select another disk file". There is no data lost during this process. VMware Player 3.1.1 fixes this issue and enables virtual machine operations to resume.
  • Mapping a virtual disk with multiple partitions to a drive on the host machine and enabling write access only succeeds if you are mounting the first partition. This update enables other partitions to be successfully mounted and accessible to the host operating system.

After seeing VM Lite at work on that old old XP case for the XP Mode I'll just have to give this one a real good lookover for sure!

(Gee I wonder if 9x...)

I was using VirtualBox, but it did not support usb for my logitech webcam. VMWare Player 3.1.1 does support my webcam, which I needed for testing the beta Office Communicator.

I still haven't gotten around to setting up the MS Lifecam model cam here to see if that will work. I'll be looking to see if it offers support as far as access to internal drives as well as usb support for other versions besides XP along with other OSs. That would make it a plus to have.
