MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Update 2.0 and VMware Fusion 5

Apple recently released an update for 2012 Macs, labeled “MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Update 2.0″ in Software Update. VMware Fusion users should refrain from applying this update. We are investigating reports that it can cause virtual machines to stop working when certain 3D applications are used.

Users who have already applied this update and are affected by this issue can work-around it by disabling the  “Accelerate 3D Graphics” option under Virtual Machine > Settings > Display.
