If you are a Apple Mac user you already experienced few issues with your applications due to the enhanced security in the Operating System Updates, I had some issues with my virtual machines, VMware Fusion Virtual Machine black screen appeared after the macOS Catalina update. I thought to share this article with my followers about this issue.
After starting the Virtual Machines, it ended up with a black screen, and unable to navigate through the console.
I have checked the available updates, and there was an update available for “Fusion PRO 11.5“. You might be seen this available updates pop up if you have enabled the auto update checker in your Fusion application. This upgrade process will automatically removes any running previous versions in your macOS. Here is the VMware KB for the upgrade process.
I was using VMware Fusion 11.1.0, this update specifically mentioned that “Ready for macOS 10.15 Catalina” and also I personally loved the “Dark Mode” came with this update. If you are running any application with a Jumbo Frames requirement, this Fusion update is for you.
Just click on the download link appear in the below or click here.
Installer will start the automatically, and just double click on the Fusion icon to begin the installation
Make sure to close any running Fusion window to avoid these prompts
Security warnings will appear due to the Catalina security enhancements, you have to open the app manually.
Once it successfully, updated the VMware Fusion version your Virtual Machines will be migrated to this version. VMware Fusion Virtual Machine Black Screen issue is fixed after this.
Again, I loved the Dark mode.
