  • 1.  Ask me to create snapshot when powering off not working in 17.5.2

    Posted 12 days ago

    Since upgrading to 17.5.2 on Windows I have lost the option to create a snapshot when powering off the VM (under VM Settings --> Options --> Snapshots).  I have tried both the "Ask Me" and "Take a new snapshot" options and neither works.  When the VM powers off only 2 buttons/options are presented: Power Off or Revert to Snapshot but the button to Take a Snapshot is gone.  Also, if I set the option to just create a snapshot when powering off the VM nothing happens.  No snapshot is created.  However, I can manually create a snapshot at any time, like normal.

    These options worked correctly in 17.5.1 and previous versions.
