Hi Srikanth

VMWare Workstation Pro 12.0

OS: Windows 10 Pro

PC/Processor: AMD 8700P.

Enabled the AMD-V

I tried the same with one my other PC.

VMWare Workstation Pro 12.0

OS: Windows 7 Pro

PC/Processor: AMD Phenom

Enabled the virtualization.

It worked.

Not sure what is missing in the new PC.

Thanks

We did not test on Windows 10. Will do it soon.

Also by default in windows 10 Hyper-V is turned on.

Can you please try by turning off Hyper-V from control panel and then reboot the machine.
