VMware and Avira
I was trying to get VMware Server running on my Windows Vista 64 machine, and every time I tried to power up a new VM, it would get stuck at 95%. I finally stumbled on a post that indicates that VMware may not play nice with Avira Antivirus. It says you have to uninstall Avira for it to work. I was hoping to get by with just turning off Avira and even shutting down the service, still no luck. It seems odd that this is still an issue, but I haven't seen any newer posts about this. I guess I may have to switch Antivirus software to get VMWare to work?
