(Switch off) vmware fusion services in OSX

So you installed the latest vmware fusion - which is pretty nice - but it now leaves a load of crud running all the time. You can stop this stuff by running:

$ sudo "/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/" --stop

There's also a bunch of handy stuff in that directory....Things like vmware-rawdiskCreator can be used to create virtual disks to link to existing partitions for booting physically (i.e. those bootable by rEFIt or Boot Camp ) installed operating systems like Linux or Windows.


  1. You mean sudo "/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/" --stop

  2. Yes - thanks for the correction!
