Manually uninstalling VMware Fusion

Manually uninstalling VMware Fusion 4.x and later

In VMware Fusion 4.x and later, there is no uninstaller. Most VMware Fusion files are contained within the application bundle (that is, the VMware Fusion application in /Applications). To uninstall VMware Fusion 4.x and later, drag the application bundle from the Applications folder to the Trash.

Also ensure that you delete these additional files and folders, if they are present:

Note: Depending on the environment, some of these files may not be present. Some files may exist only if VMware Fusion 3 was originally installed on a machine that was later upgraded to VMware Fusion 4.x and later.

  • /Library/Application Support/VMware
  • /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

Note: In Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and later, the Library folder inside your user directory is hidden by default. To access your Library folder:

  1. Click the Finder icon.
  2. While pressing the Option key, click the Go menu. This reveals your Library folder.

Manually uninstalling VMware Fusion 3.x and earlier

  1. Run the uninstall script named Uninstall VMware Fusion, which is located in [Macintosh HD]/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/.

    Note: In Lion and Mountain Lion, the Library folder inside your user directory is hidden by default. To access your Library folder:

    1. Click the Finder icon.
    2. While pressing the Option key, click the Go menu. This reveals your Library folder.
  2. Click Uninstall.
  3. Enter your password.
  4. Click OK when the uninstaller finishes.
  5. Delete these folders or files:
    • [Macintosh HD]/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion
    • [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
  6. Restart your Mac. This ensures all VMware Fusion kernel extensions are unloaded from memory.
