I had to uninstall the optional update KB 2995388 as it does not play nice with VMware Player and my virtual machines. My solution appears to work for others and hopefully M$ will fix this error so I can reinstall this update
Not enough Physical Memory... Error message
I see from your other post that there is a fix by changing the VM config.ini. Are you going to reinstall the update again?
As who fixes it, well that's depends on who created the error. It could have been MS, but it could be the code in VMWare wasn't quite compliant and they'll patch it.
Also thank god this was only an optional update and not an important one.
I can't say I have any issues at all with Windows 8.1 and the current version of vmware -- although I'm running on a LINUX host and I usually use "Unity" mode.
No Bing bar for me either. Here's IE on a Linux desktop (again use "Unity Mode") with standard Google (UK) search - No BING anywhere to be seen.
