P2V converting Windows XP Pr0 failure

I have a very old XP machine that needs to be virtualized the VCenter Converter fails to install.  When attempting to install it as standalone, at the last minute it will not start vmware services with the error "no admin priviledges".  The services will not let me manually start them.  The next attempt was to use the advanced feature to allow the XP machine to be converted remotely.  It gets to the screen for the port settings and will go no further when clicking on the next button.

Looking for solutions, please.

I have reported your post to the moderators, since it needs moving to the area for Converter Standalone.
