I don't have experience of VMWare with a Freerunner, but in my 
experience vmware (windows free version) usb devices can be problematic.
It's been a while, but I think you need to have the vm in focus when you 
connect the device, and the device should be connect after the vm boots.
Trivial to try, so please let us know what works.
