After upgrading to Windows 10, all of my VMWare Professional v10.x guest machines lost their connection to the network. Taking a look at their network connections, I found that I’d lost the default vmnet0 network, and trying to add it back as a bridged network threw the error “There are no un-bridged host network adapters”.

I had run some pre-release versions in Virtual Machines and on a test laptop over the last few months, but this was my first venture into upgrading with my everyday machine, and the one I’m writing from now.
