All files will be extracted into a vmware directory. Inside here you will find a package called vmwareworkstation.msi. Extract it using 7-Zip. Enter the extracted directory and extract Core.cab. Go inside the extract directory and you will find vmnetcfg.exe Now copy this file into your VMware Player diretory, like
Of course I tried the workaround by copying the vmnetcfg.exe and vmnetcfglib.dll files from VMware Workstation 10 to a system only having VMware Player 6 installed and modified VMnets with it otherwise I wouldn't have posted what I did!
Additionally I used appropriate utilities to examine .exe and .dll files of appropriate sizes in both VMware Workstation 10 and VMware Player 6 to examine the function calls available in each and did not find the necessary call(s) in VMware Player 6's .exe or .dll files to replicate what the vmnetcfg.exe and vmnetcfglib.dll files from VMware Workstation 10 can do. While I admit it was a quick review nonetheless I'm confident that the way to access a fully functional Virtual Network Editor GUI in VMware Player 6 is to use the vmnetcfg.exe and vmnetcfglib.dll files from VMware Workstation 10.
Message was edited by: WoodyZ... Also note that prior to WS10 only the vmnetcfg.exe file was required and I did not test the pre-WS10 vmnetcfg.exe file to see if it too can work in VMware Player 6. When I get a chance I'll have to test that.
VMware has removed the vmnetui.dll from VMware Player 6 and in VMware Workstation 10 has now implemented vmnetcfglib.dll in conjunction with vmnetcfg.exe where in the past vmnetcfg.exe was the only file required under VMware Workstation. I've done a quick analysis of the remaining .dll files in the VMware Player 6 install and it doesn't appear there is a .dll that can be called in the same manner like in VMware Player 5, so all I can suggest is copying the vmnetcfg.exe and vmnetcfglib.dll files from a VMware Workstation 10 install to the VMware Player 6.0 working directory.
Sorry, Woody; I would have said: "I copied vmwarebase.dll too" (after copying vmnetcfg.exe and vmnetcfglib.dll), as the error pointed to certain offset in that library (just a long shot :smileysilly: ).
I just tested installing VMware Player from the VMware-player-6.0.2-1744117.exe file and then extracted vmnetcfg.exe and vmnetcfglib.dll from the core.cab file from an extracted VMware-workstation-full-10.0.2-1744117.exe file placing them in the working directory of VMware Player and The Virtual Network Editor works without issue! Note that the VMware Player executable and the two extracted files for the Virtual Network Editor are all the same version, 10.0.2.46408!
Download vmnetcfg.exe here free of cost for both VMware player 4 and VMware player 5. The vmnetcfg.exe file is the Virtual Network Editor for VMware player. It is not copied to the installation folder by default and needs to be manually copied to the folder from the temporary folder. Read the article Components of VMware Network for instructions on how to do this.
I have VMware Workstation 15 Player installed on Windows 10 (64-bit). When I attempt to launch (double click) on C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Player\vmnetcfg.exe, a window pops up with the following error:
I'm looking to see if my org. installed it incorrectly. I checked the build for vmnetcfg.exe and it is the 12.5.5!?! vmplayer.exe is 15.5.1. So now I am trying to locate vmnetcfg.exe that is for VMware Workstation 15 Player. Perhaps 12.5.5 is the correct build, or perhaps we need a newer one.
Hi,Facing the same issue with VMware Player (Workstation) 16.I downloaded Workstation 16, extracted the .exe then looked into the core.cab.There was only the vmnetcfg.exe file and no signe of _vmnetcfglib.dll (or I was too tired to found it).So I copied vmnetcfg.exe to the vmware program folder and tried it and it still works great. ?
For newer versions there is no need to install Workstation PRO, just download the installer, execute the installer with /x option, this will unpack file to %temp% folder, search there for the most recent folder, open VMwareWorkstation.msi with 7-zip or similar programs, open or extract Workstation.cab and extract vmnetcfg.exe from there. Now just copy the file to your VMWare Player folder.
Thank you download works, unfortunately this virtual network editor does not allow to dedicate host NIC to guests only on vmware player 12.1.On host NIC i selected only vmware bridge protocol.Then I defined vmnet2 as bridged to host NIC.Guests have no internet access when using such custom vmnet2.However when i select additionally also tcpip protocol for host NIC, guest vm regains internet access.Anybody can help how to make host NIC available only for guests?Is this Player 12.1 limitation? =en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1020359
Hello,I would like to let you know that for vmware version 12.1.0 build-3272444 as of December 2015, the exe you provide does not work. I did the full method of downloading the pro version, installing, and getting the said file. With this new version I could use the utility.Thanks! 2b1af7f3a8
