Error was "The device is not allowed by the virtual machine configuration."


usb.restrictions.defaultAllow = "TRUE"

This even seems to allow other VMs to start working without editing their vmx files.

Other things tried:

usb.generic.allowHID = "TRUE"
usb.generic.allowLastHID = "TRUE"

usb.ccid.disable = "TRUE"
usb.generic.allowCCID = "TRUE"

vi /etc/vmware/config
usb.quirks.device0 = "0x1050:0x0404 allow"
