Recently Apple released an update for 2012 Macs named MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Update 2.0. The update includes graphics performance and reliability enhancements. It has been discovered that once users update to the latest release of MacBook Pro Update 2.0, there is breakage in the host display driver causing virtual machines to crash while using certain 3D applications. VMware engineering team is currently investigating this issue.

VMware Fusion users should refrain from applying this update.

VMware Fusion users who have already applied this update and are affected by this issue can work-around it by disabling the Accelerate 3D Graphics option under Virtual Machine > Settings > Display.
