VMware Fusion 2.0/2.0.1 and Mac OS X 10.5.6

Yesterday Apple released Mac OS X 10.5.6 update. For folks who are running Mac OS X Server 10.5.x in a virtual machine, you may see Software Update (in the virtual machine) offering to update your system. We recommend that you do not proceed with this update, or at least take a snapshot of your OS X guest first.

are some known issues with this OS update that cause WindowManager to fail under default setting in a OS X virtual machine, as well as some USB issues. Go to the updated VMware Fusion 2.0.1 Release Notes
for more details on these issues and
workaround in case you already updated your virtual machine to 10.5.6.

These issues will be fixed in the next maintenance release of VMware Fusion. And they do not affect Mac OS X 10.5.6 as a host.

    ‘m getting the following message in VMware Fusion 2.0 after updating to OS X 10.5.6
    “VMware Fusion cannot connect to the virtual machine”.
    The only way I can fix it is to reinstall VMware every time I reboot.
    Worked fine 10.5.5

    This issue exists for me now in VMware Fusion 2.0.6
    VMware Fusion cannot connect to the virtual machine.
    uninstall/reboot/reinstall does not fix the issue.
    Running Disk Utility to fix permissions also does not fix anything
    Nothing has changed on my system either.

    The major newspapers often publish these restaurant coupons to
    make it easily accessible for the widespread mass. Daily
    Deal Sites Laser hair removal, tanning and services of that ilk are plentiful on
    daily deal sites, but mall retailers such as Old Navy and Barnes &
    Noble also offer discount vouchers. Years ago I witnessed the delivery of
    one, which would become many, “Show Stopping” phases ever to
