remove VMware Fusion

On April 25, 2016, VMware Fusion ushered in a major update with the publishing of VMware Fusion 8.1.1, which has fixed many bugs, and is more compatible with Windows 10 and Mac OS X EI Capitan perfectly. In recent years, VMware Fusion has updated from version 4.0 up to 8.1. The functionality of this program is getting more and more powerful, and is quite humanized during use and installation. However, it is a pity that VMware Fusion didn’t offer a good uninstall solution. What we can get from the VMware Fusion Official site is just a manual uninstall tutorial. According to that we will need to manually delete lots of files, such as

  • /Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion
  • /Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion
  • ~/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion
  • ~/Library/Caches/com.vmware.fusion
  • ~/Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.vmware.fusion.LSSharedFileList.plist
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.vmware.fusion.LSSharedFileList.plist.lockfile
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.vmware.fusion.plist
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.vmware.fusion.plist.lockfile
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.vmware.fusionDaemon.plist
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.vmware.fusionDaemon.plist.lockfile
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.vmware.fusionStartMenu.plist
  • ~/Library/Preferences/com.vmware.fusionStartMenu.plist.lockfile

  • [Macintosh HD]/Users/<your username>/Library/Preferences/com.vmware.fusion.plist
  • [Macintosh HD]/Users/<your username>/Library/Preferences/com.vmware.fusionDaemon.plist
  • [Macintosh HD]/Users/<your username>/Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion
  • [Macintosh HD]/Users/<your username>/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion

Also, we need to use the following commands to delete files:

  • sudo /Library/Application\ Support/VMware\ Fusion/Uninstall\ VMware\
  • sudo rm -fdr /Library/Application\ Support/VMware\ Fusion/
  • sudo rm -f /Library/Receipts/VMware\ Fusion.pkg
  • sudo rm -f ~/Library/Preferences/com.vmware.fusion.plist
  • sudo rm -fdr ~/Library/Preferences/VMware\ Fusion/

In addition, the important thing to note is that different versions of VMware Fusion require different uninstall methods. Hence we can see that the uninstallation of VMware Fusion is not humanized.

In order to troubleshoot such an uninstall issue, MacRemover provides the function of completely uninstalling VMware Fusion with one click, which greatly simplifies the uninstall operations of VMware Fusion.
