New (?) Windows 7 patch may break VMware

I have no idea if this would affect any of us, but for those of us running Windows 7 and using the simulator, there is apparently a Windows patch that may break VMware.

 

I never set my machines for automatic update, so I'm covered for now, but if you have updates applied automatically, keep this in mind and if you notice new problems, you may want to try doing a rollback to undo the patches.  Or wait to see if any more information comes about this.

Re: New (?) Windows 7 patch may break VMware

Isn't it only related to VMware View software? I read the article and it doesn't seem to affect VMware player, doest it?

 

In any case, the VMware article about that already points to a update.

 

Cheers

Thanks for the heads up! I do manual updates as well. This would've been a pain!

 

Edit: @pedgarcia, it does look like there is a client view patch available. If you follow this link it will prompt you to login, then direct you to the patch download.

I know next to nothing about VMware, so I thought perhaps the stuff about View Client was talking about a component in the VMware Player GUI that talks to something in the VM backend... 

 

If it doesn't affect VMware Player, I guess it's a moot point. Thanks.
