Has anybody tried to run VMWorkstation 16 on Windows 11 yet? I installed Windows 11 last Friday and so far Workstation 16 seems to work almost flawlessly. The only thing that does not work is suspending the VM which results in an error message and the immediate shutdown of the guest os. Other than that it works just fine. But I only run a Linux based system for my online activity and don't use most of the advanced functionalities of Workstation 16 so your mileage may vary.

I'm running VMware 16 Player in Windows 11 Beta to run the Win 11 Dev builds and the only problem I've noticed is that if I let OS that is running in the VM sleep to long VMware shuts down or crashes and I have to restart it. I have set the OS running in the VM to never sleep but I haven't tested it yet.

My guest system (Arch Linux) never sleeps. Does suspending the guest work for you?

I had to go away for awhile today and put the host OS in sleep mode. When I woke my desktop all I had to do was click on my VM to wake the monitor. Looks like not using Sleep Mode on my VM is working.

Great but what happens if you try to suspend the guest using the suspend button of VMWare Player? That's what crashes my VM.
