[SOLVED]Embedded Studio crashes on VMware VM

I am using Embedded Studio 3.26a on a VMware virtual machine running Ubuntu 16.04. The host computer runs Windows 7-64 bit and VMware Player 12.

When my J-Link is connected to the VM via USB, Embedded Studio crashes during start-up.

When the J-Link is not USB-connected to the VM, Embedded Studio uses it via LAN (it's a Pro), and that works fine, but it doesn't use my license this way.

I understand why the J-Link does not expose its licenses to LAN clients, but how can I use a USB J-Link with a VM?

Thank you,
Achim

Hello Achim,

Thank you for your inquiry.
Such a behaviour is not known to us.
I tried to reproduce the issue you were seeing, but Embedded Studio was starting just fine in the Ubuntu VM while my J-Link PRO was connected to it via USB.

Have you installed the J-Link Software Package in your Linux VM? https://www.segger.com/downloads/jlink/

Are you using some kind of USB-Hub? Does the issue resolve when you connect directly to your PC without any hub in between?

Best regards,
Nino

Hello Nino, thank you very much, you helped me out.

I think it was the software package. After installing it and rebooting the workstation, it works fine now.

Best regards,
Achim
