VMware Workstation unrecoverable error: (vcpu-1)
Exception 0x0000005 (access violation) has occurred.
There are many solutions available over the internet, I will combine all the solutions here.
This fix is available from VMware, you need to disable Virtualization security through GPO, Turn off the Hyper-V feature and set hypervisorlaunchtype off.
The second fix is common to solve the “Exception 0x0000005” error, disable “Accelerate 3D graphics” in Virtual machine Hardware.
The third fix is if you are running Windows 11 then you may need to upgrade to “VMware® Workstation 17 Pro” or the latest version. I have tested the “17.0.0 build-20800274” version and the issue was fixed.
