    I am getting the following error (see attached screenshot) when I start up my Windows 8.1 Pro VM on my MBP. This adapter no longer exists on my MBP. What do I need to do to remove it from the VM's configuration?

    "The network adapter 1 cannot be connected.
    The network adapter Wired 3 you selected to be used by the virtual adapter 2 doesn't exist on the host computer. Select
    another physical network adapter and try again."

    Can't seem to find where this is defined in the VM's Configuration.

    Hello @James Minnihan please shut down the virtual machine(Click on Two red lines > Go To Action > Shutdown) and open virtual machine configuration and Go To Hardware > Check how many Network Adapters are added. If you see Network Adapter 3, please select the Network Adapter and remove using the "-" symbol on the left bottom corner in the virtual machine configuration. Thanks, Shathish
