Hello everyone,

I tried yesterday to set up a VM (macOS with DEP) via AutoDMG for VM Fusion but I got the following issue. Is anyone familiar with that?

VM Fusion Pro version: 11.5
Macbook Pro: 10.15.1

sudo vfuse  -i /users/myUSER/Desktop/vmcatalina.dmg -n "macOS15.1.0" -s C02YUZA848XX --hw-model MacBookPro13,1
Mounting /users/myUser/Desktop/vmcatalina.dmg
macOS version is 10.15.1
Unmounting /dev/disk2
Using VMware Fusion path: /Applications/VMware Fusion.app

I solved it with

--use-qemu /opt/local/bin/qemu-img
