Today, ran across an error that I was previously unfamiliar with when running VMware workstation. The error occurred on my Windows 10 laptop with Workstation 14. The error read "VMware Workstation and Device/Credential Guard are not compatible. VMware Workstation can be run after disabling Device/Credential Guard." and was displayed as attempted to power on the VM.
A quick google search took me to a vmware KB article (https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2146361) that lists the cause as "This issue occurs because Device Guard or Credential Guard is incompatible with Workstation." The fix, however, leads to a more general cause - VMware Workstation isn't compatible with Hyper-V. When reading through the fix, the advice starts with instructions for explicitly disabling the "device guard" feature. But then later on, the instructions state to uninstall the Hyper-V role completely. A few more google searches led me to discussion groups where people see issues running the two hypervisors on the same pc. It seems odd in 2018 that this would be an issue, but it seems to be true.
There was a time when I would have done this as I generally prefer the way Workstation handles vms and networking to hyper-v on a laptop. The problem here is that Docker for Windows 10 uses Hyper-V. So the decision isn't just VMware Workstation or Hyper-V, it's VMware workstation vs. Hyper-V AND Docker. Since I'm doing more with learning containers, I elected to not use VMware workstation.
