vmware authorization service not running

I had upgraded /re installed Windows 10 on existing Windows 10 host machine and after that I am having some or the other problem.

I got error vmware autorization service not running when powering on virtual machines as normal user.

However I checked services.msc . I opened services.msc as administrator and I can not see the service mentioned.

What more should I be checking?

Hi,

Try uninstalling VMware Workstation, then reboot and after the reboot install VMware Workstation again.

Note that the reboot in between is mandatory as it is -in Windows- the only way to be sure that files marked for deletion do not end up getting used and then deleted on the very first reboot afterwards.
