Monitor_Control.Restrict_Backdoor = True

Monitor_Control.Restrict_Backdoor = True

If you want to run a VMWare Fusion6 VM on a Mac and don’t want to use Bootcamp or parallels, then you can do it using monitor_control.restrict_backdoor = true in the vmx file. But many people noticed that it is not running and stating that it doesn’t run in a Virtual Machine. Also, the VMWare tools crash on the VM during this process. Here is a possible solution that you can try to troubleshoot this issue. 

While using Monitor_control.restrict_backdoor = true, you need to keep in mind that VMWare tools access the backdoor port from ring 3. So, if the setting is done to access the backdoor port from ring 0, then it will disable VMWare tools.
