VMware Workstation Player – No Bridge Adapter available

Lately Microsoft convinced me to upgrade my Windows 7 @ home up to Windows 10. When I upgraded my Windows I checked all the installed tools for Upgrades and also upgrade my old VMware Player 6 to the new VMware Workstation Player 12.
Today I was playing with MDT at home and wanted to set up a test VM to check if everything is working, but I was not able to get the bridged interface working.
I was able to selct it, but I didn’t get an IP from my DHCP so I thought I’ll disable all adapter except the LOM which is connected to my Router, but there were no adapters. 🙁

After a little bit of investigating I found out, that my LOM didn’t have the VMware Bridge Service installed. VMwareBridgeService

After installing the service I was able to set up the bridge adapter for the VM.
