I have been using VMware workstation for some time but recently switched to VMware player 3.0, (largely due to irritating instllation problems for Workstation 6.5.3 under Ubuntu 9.10 x86_64).
With Workstation, I use the vmrun command to shut down all my virtual machines.
Despite downloading the latest version of Vmware-vix (1.8.1), vmrun suspend generates this error message:
Unable to connect to host Error: Service type VIX_SERVICEPROVIDER_VMWARE_WORKSTATION
My reading of the documentation seemed to suggest that vmrun shoudl work with Player as well as Workstation. Please could someone help me understand what' I'm missing here?
