Resolved Issues:
When you use a USB device that does not follow USB specifications in a virtual machine in USB passthrough mode, the guest becomes unusable When you attempt to pass through a USB device that does not follow USB specifications, such as the Broadcom 5880 smart card reader, to a Windows 7 or Windows 10 guest operating system, the device causes the guest CPU usage to increase to the maximum level, making the guest unusable.
Occasionally, Workstation Player crashes when you unplug a USB device after safely removing the device from the virtual machine When you connect a USB device to a virtual machine, read from and write to the device, safely eject the device from the guest operating system, and unplug the device from the physical port, Workstation Player might crash.

The process does not release the TCP port even when the FTP session is closed.
You cannot connect a parallel port to a virtual machine When you attempt to map a parallel port to a physical parallel port, you cannot use the parallel port in the virtual machine. The connecting parallel port listed when you select VM > Settings triggers the following error: Cannot open VMparport drivr for LPT1: the system cannot find the file specified.....
