“Not enough Physical Memory” error – VMware Workstation problem on Windows 8.1

When I first started virtualising vSphere 6, I had issues with VMware Workstation starting VMs.

I kept getting message “not enough physical memory is available”, when powering on VMs, despite having 16Gb and only attempting to start 1 VM with 1Gb RAM.

To fix this issue, edit c:\ProgramData\VMware\VMwareWorkstation\config.ini and add the line:

vmmon.disableHostParameters = “TRUE”

Then reboot.
