Vimalin for Fusion 2.6.560 update

Vimalin for Fusion 2.6.560 update

This is an update release that also has a few important bug fixes for Fusion 12.2

https://www.vimalin.com/download/Vimalin-2.6.560.dmg
(or use the Vimalin -> "Check for Updates" menu option)

Please note that the update recommendation is to first uninstall your existing Vimalin application by dragging it to the Trash (or for our English users, drag it to the Bin).
Only after the old Vimalin is uninstalled run the installer to update to Vimalin 2.6.560.

Here's the list of changes since version 2.6.547:

New

  • Support for VMware Fusion 12.2.x

General fixes

  • Fixed an issue with backup of a running VM and restoring it in running state. In Fusion 12.2 there are some small changes to the .vmx that caused this process to misbehave. Fusion would report that the .vmx file is corrupted when trying to open the restored VM. This is now fixed.

  • We're now adding an embedded info.plist to the vimalinWorker binary in an attempt to resolve the security issues requiring Full Disk Access requirements for vimalinWorker. Sadly this does not make any difference, the issue on this is exactly as it was. Our resolve for the moment is an extension to the error message that points to the FAQ section at our website.

Backup Archive

  • Context menu option "Add Notes..." now changes the text into "Edit Notes..." once you have added some notes.

Known Issues

  • If you use Windows 11 with vTPM (or normally encrypted) you cannot make backups when the VM is running. See here for more information.

  • There have been reports of users who upgraded to this version and their backups are stuck. Please read how-to resolve this at the Stuck on Started post in the Vimalin for Fusion area.
