The issue with Vagrant not functioning after the Windows Upgrade , has now been resolved.

Solution:

  1. Move to the following directory: “C:\HashiCorp\VagrantVMwareUtility\bin”
  2. Install the Service - command: vagrant-vmware-utility service install
  3. Start the Service – command: vagrant-vmware-utility service run
  4. Launch Windows Service Panel and change Startup type: to “Automatic”

Assuming that the Windows update disabled and/or removed this service. After reinstalling vagrant-vmware-utility I had to manually install the service.
