VMWare Workstation 17.5.2 hangs after licensing screen

Hey all,
I have enabled vmware-workstation via the usual methods and after a clean nixos-rebuild switch I launch the app and am presented with the licensing screen. I happily enter my license, click Finish, aaaannnd it just sits there.

Looks like an Xwayland bug.

Any suggestions?

While I unfortunately can’t pose any solutions at this stage as I’m only newly switching over to NixOS right now, I’m just adding that I’m seeing exactly the same issue. Same Workstation version, have enabled virtualisation.vmware.host.enable. For both Workstation and Player, hitting ‘Finish’ on the licence screen results in the program freezing. Mine’s also running in XWayland.

sudo -E vmware works
