VM fails to start incorrect version of driver vmci.sys

VMware Workstation 11

VM fails to start incorrect version of driver vmci.sys
Error – You have an incorrect version of driver “vmci.sys”

When I start the virtual machine in VMware Workstation 8 I receive the following error:
You have an incorrect version of driver “vmci.sys”. Try reinstalling VMware Workstation.

Reason
A bugy in version 8 has several problems with VMCI

All default VMs have vmci0.present = “true”
In the vmx file

 Fix  – https://communities.vmware.com/message/1859447

  1. Open the vmx file related to the vm
  2. Locate and change the following line to vmci0.present = “false”
  3. Save file
  4. Start the VM
