Known Issues

The following issues might occur in VMware Player 7.1.2.

  • Using a USB headset with a Windows 8 or later guest operating system does not work
    Because most USB headsets expect a USB 2.0 controller, whereas Windows 8 and later guest operating systems use a USB 3.0 controller by default, you cannot use USB headsets with Windows 8 or later guests.
    Workaround: Change the USB controller of the guest from USB 3.0 to USB 2.0.

The following issues were resolved in VMware Player 7.1.2.

  • Using audio conferencing software on a Windows 8 guest operating system caused a severe echo during both video and audio calls
