I just tried to load up VMware Worstation, and tried to load up the CS50 appliance. It was working fine yesterday, However it just keeps coming up with this error message everytime i click "power on this machine"


"VMware Authorization Service is not running"

  • Does your PC have multiple users? If so are you sure you are logged in as Alex Saunders (on whose Document directory the appliance was installed). Did you try to run the appliance as administrator? – ChrisG Jul 18 '15 at 17:04
  • Through my own idiocy, i had disabled VMware start up process in task manager, causing it to start incorrectly... Completely my own fault... Thank you for your help though! – Alexander Saunders Jul 20 '15 at 10:29
  • Np! Glad you could solve it yourself! – ChrisG Jul 20 '15 at 11:00
  • I am also getting a similar error message. What should one do to try to run the appliance as administrator? – uma1966 Sep 9 '15 at 5:35
