    Error "Setup failed to generate the SSL keys necessary to run VMware Server"

    RSTQSI Lurker

      I need to install VMServer 2.02-293138 onto another Windows 7 64bit PC...I cannot get past the Error "Setup failed to generate the SSL keys necessary to run VMware Server" ... I do not even need/want the SSL connection to the management console...I only connect to the VMware Server console on the PC that is running the software.  I have tried the suggestions that i hove found doing Google searches including remove all files from Windows\Temp, verified that there were no other copies of openssl.exe on the PC, removed Windows Security Essentials, turned off the Windows Firewall for Private and Public, logging onto Windows as Administrator...

       

      Are there any logs that can be examined to see why it is failing?

       

      Can VMware Server be installed without needing the SSL key installed?
