Qureshih...assuming u changed to bridged from NAT and restarted everything...get the ip address of the local machine using ifconfig command in the command prompt. Use this ipaddress:8080/prweb/PRServlet
The network bridge on device VMnet0 is not running. The virtual machine will not be able to communicate with the host or with other machines on your network. Virtual device ethernet0 will start disconnected
May be not that much of an issue -although I think the response times of the Cloud version of Pega are a bit too high- but what is missing is a list of supported operating systems and a clear description that Windows 10 is currently not supported. It is really time-consuming and annoying having to discover this myself.
Note that installing VMWare Workstation Player 12 may be a solution to this issue, but must be licensed for commercial use (VMware writes: VMware Workstation Player is designed to be used commercially. It is licensed for use by employees, training organizations, contractors and can be transferred to partners or potential customers.)
So, what options / alternatives are left? Do I need to install a stack (webserver, database management system, etc.) myself in order to run Pega? Can you share the steps to speed this up and avoid new compatibility issues?
Although Windows 10 hasn't yet been explicitly named as a supported operating system in my course documentation like some other Windows versions, PVS can be run on Windows 10.
The PVS documentation advises to use Oracle's VirtualBox, which runs on Windows 10 perfectly. Please use the latest download of the exercise system and Virtual Machine Quick Start Guide.
Please note the remark on the 'downloading the exercise system' page. Although the remark does not say the standard (de)compression software on Windows 10 does not work, I can confirm that the standard (de)compression software (at least for me at the time of writing and on my freshly installed 64-bit Windows) gave 0x80004005 errors. ZipItFree didn't work either (did not complain, but gave 0-byte files). 7-Zip worked fine.
After i downloaded the exercise system i am not able to find the VM player installation file . Should i download it on my own . Please let me know where i can find this exe file . My laptop's OS version is Windows 10
