  1. Hi Shawn
    I created a windows 10 pro virtual machine with vmware
    I have another one virtual machine with windows 7 i was working with this virtual machine but i need to upgrade factory talk studio from 9 to 10 for that i created a virtual machine with windows 10. I want to work with both versions.
    When i tried to connect de vm 10 wiht my plc i coulnd´t. I have the same adapter configuration on vm7 and vm10. I couldn´t do a ping de plc wiht vm10. That is happening when i tried to do a ping.
    With vm7 i can connect wiht plc and hmi.
    Could you tell me what i did wrong? Thank you
    Good afternoon @itzel,
    Can you ping your router?
    In my office my router is setup as
    Whenever I have an issue with a VM, I first check to see if I can ping my router to be sure the network connection is working.
    As far as what work's best, I use the VMware "virtual network editor" to map a VMnet (like VMNet10) to my physical network card as a "Bridged" connection.
    Then in each of my vm's settings, I set the network adapter to my custom virtual network (aka VMnet10)
    Hope this helps,
