I have been struggling to get to the bottom of an issue with the Auto Start feature on Vmware Workstation 14 – I am running version 14.1.2 build-8497320
The issue I have is that when I perform a cold boot from a shutdown state, the VM’s do not Auto Start.
However, if the system is rebooted the VM’s start automatically without any issue every time. Not sure if windows handle the boot of a system from a shutdown state differently compared a reboot but I cannot see why it should – it’s just a normal boot of the system.
Has anyone else seen this and if you have any tips for fixing the issue?
