I have a VM in Workstation 15.5.6 that was originally shared and working properly. While trying to learn a little more about sharing permissions (inside Workstation Pro, not Windows permissions) for shared VMs I managed to put myself in the position of not being able to stop sharing that VMs. I tried putting the permissions back as they were, but that didn’t help. I finally decided to just remove the VM from Workstation, delete the VM from disk through Windows, which works. The VM runs fine, but now I can’t remove the reference to the previous version that shows in the Library under Shared VMs in Workstation When I click the Remove option on the context menu for the reference, nothing happens – no errors, no hourglass, no nothing. I’ve uninstalled/reinstalled Workstation twice now, the second time manually removing any folders and files left behind in the user profile and Program Files folders, to no avail. I’ve also searched the registry without any success.
Has anyone else ever had this happen to them? I’m trying to avoid having to recreate my user profile or refresh Windows 10 to fix this.
Thanks in advance.
