Problem – Failed to install hcmon driver:
While trying to install VMware’s VMRC on Microsoft Windows 10 the installation fails with error “Failed to install hcmon driver”
In my case I was trying to install VMRC version 7.0.1-2508353
The solution that resolved the error for me was to run the installer with elevated privileges.
- Open a command prompt as administrator.
- Launch the installer from the elevated command prompt.
