VMware VMRC: Failed to install hcmon driver – Windows 10

While trying to install VMware’s VMRC on Microsoft Windows 10 the installation fails with error “Failed to install hcmon driver”



The solution that resolved the error for me was to run the installer with elevated privileges.

  • Open a command prompt as administrator.
  • Launch the installer from the elevated command prompt.
