I had downloaded Android 6.0 Marshmallow's ISO from the net and tried to run it on VMware Workstation Player 12. It all went well. I was running it without installation so it asked me language which was default English. Sim Card was skipped. When WiFi connection was asked I skipped. It gave me a warning ... And I pressed skip anyway. Now the problem came. It gave me an error "Google Play Services unfortunately stopped" and redirected me back to language page and looped. I think it is because of internet connection which I am unable to configure.

Kindly suggest me how to solve this problem.



  • Link to the ISO you're talking about? Skipping the setup wizard on official Android-x86 6.0 r3 and CM13.0 r1 works alright for me when I was testing them not long ago.

  • Can u plz give me instructions on how to set up Wi-Fi or Internet whatever possible on VMware Commented Jun 29, 2017 at 11:30
  • I did not - I booted it natively from a USB stick. I did skip the WiFi part and it gave me no problem. Just try the official ones if you aren't using them - there's no reason to use an unofficial one unless you're after the latest, and even then Android-x86 officially offers an initial release of Android 7.1 for testing too.

Default network settings on VMware is NAT as i remember. Try to bridge network from VMware network settings. However i never had such problem for installed android on VMware. I had several times same issue on my android 6.0 device and i simply just cleared cache for applications and reset network. Try to remove completely Android from VM and reinstall. Also did you set other graphics and etc.. In settings. Or maybe ISO's fault and android security due network.

  • I don't know which version of VMware you've. But go to network control panel and change default from NAT to bridged and set connect at power on. Also go in network settings of android in VM and set same bridged. Reload VMware and try again to set up android.

  • Maybe your firewall blocks networking for VMware if that won't work uninstall VMware completely and if it asks to keep configuration files don't keep and install it again as administrator and firewall should ask to allow network sharing.

  • Buddy the problem is that I am weak at the field of network. So can you help me by giving step by step instructions. Windows 7 VMware Workstation Player 12 Commented Jun 29, 2017 at 12:49

I'm not at home right now and i have to go but once i get home I'll tell you what might work. When you mounted android ISO did you set x32 or x64 and you might need to enable virtualization from bios settings.
