One of the most recent issues that users experience on Windows 10 version 1903, or May 2019 Update, concerns VMWare Workstation Pro, which apparently can no longer launch if an older version is installed.

Certainly, this sounds concerning, especially for enterprises using this software on a regular basis, but according to reports, it may all come down to VMWare Workstation Pro itself being removed from the Windows Application Compatibility database.

Let’s see what’s happening here.

First and foremost, the issue first made the rounds earlier this month, apparently after installing the latest cumulative updates. Judging from posts on the official VMWare forums, there are four different cumulative updates for Windows 10 version 1903 that might be triggering this behavior:

October 24, 2019—KB4522355 (OS Build 18362.449) October 8, 2019—KB4517389 (OS Build 18362.418) October 3, 2019—KB4524147 (OS Build 18362.388) September 26, 2019—KB4517211 (OS Build 18362.387)

Once one of these cumulative updates is installed on Windows 10 devices, trying to run VMWare Workstation Pro fails with the following error generated by the Compatibility Assistant:

` VMware Workstation Pro can’t run on Windows. Check for an updated version of this app that runs on Windows. `According to user reports on the VMware forums, the issue affects all versions of VMWare Workstation Pro prior to 15.1. In its turn, VMWare Workstation Pro 15.1 was released earlier this year with Windows 10 19H1 (version 1903) support, although at that point, nobody expected earlier versions to be blocked on Windows 10.

As per AskWoody, Microsoft has recently removed VMWare from the Windows Application Compatibility database, which means that the app can’t run because it’s not considered a compatible product. While Microsoft hasn’t provided any details on this problem, and I’ve reached out to the company to ask for more information in an attempt to determine why exactly VMWare Workstation Pro is blocked on Windows 10 version 1903. I’ll update the article when an answer is offered, but in the meantime, you can use the ridiculously-easy workaround detailed above to get the software up and running.
