Run HyperDbg on VMware

How to run HyperDbg on VMware nested-virtualization?

If you want to attach to HyperDbg in the debugger mode or if you want to attach two VMs together, please follow the steps provided here.

In order to run HyperDbg on VMware, you should enable nested-virtualization on it.

First of all, make sure to update your VMWare to the latest version (it’s important as VMWare sometimes has problems with nested-virtualization on out-dated versions).

Click on "Edit virtual machine settings" on your target VM.

Now, enable the following options on your machine.

Note that you have a limitation on using !ioin and !ioout in VMware nested-virtualization. (VMware backdoor I/O port).

HyperDbg will not hide traces from VMware or any other nested-virtualization environments. Malware or any application can detect the presence of VMWare, and regular anti-vm techniques detect the VMware environment.
