Starting HWiNFO with VMWare Workstation 10 running.

Hi Martin,

Just an FYI, if you need anything from me like logs, just let me know, but I noticed consistently when I have VMWare Workstation 10 running (Guest O/S's running,) and then I start HWiNFO, HWiNFO seems like it hung on "flushing buffers" -- I see lots of drive activity, but it goes on for minutes and doesn't go past that so I kill it, shut down the guests and open it and it works.

Thanks for your feedback, this is interesting. Such operation should not cause any issues, only if there would be some heavy disk traffic constantly buffered.
Try to disable the "Flush Buffers on Start" option in HWiNFO, that should help.

Great, thanks as well -- I'll try that out tonight (I'm working in the VM's now.)
