VMware Workstation loses bridged network and it does not want to come back following the usual methodologies. I restarted the VMware Workstation services, used the Network Manager, and reboot the computer all to no avail. In the end, it was something that wasn’t a problem before.
On a Microsoft Windows 10 workstation running VMware Workstation 12 for many months without issue, suddenly the bridged network fails. The issue was the antivirus.
I stopped the antivirus, used the Virtual Network Editor to fix the bridge, restarted the antivirus.
