Please note: The following question was recently submitted via e-mail by a user. I upgraded a VM to Workstation 6.5 (build 126130), on Windows XP Professional. The VM build is from an old computer that was running 5.0.0 (build 13124) which I upgraded after the fact. When I run the VM on the new computer, I get the following error message: "The virtual network drivers on the host are incompatible with the installed VMWare application. Expected version 5. Please reinstall the product." I don't have any network capability with this; it starts it as disconnected.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello, now you have upgraded the workstation version it will expect you to upgrade the VMtools installed, in the VM right click the VMtools icon in the corner and once opened tell it to upgrade the tools, this it should require a reboot and then your drivers will be up to date. hope this helps

Thanks
