    Event Viewer Error vmauthd (EventID 100)

    juanl Lurker

      Hi, I've installed VMW Server 1.0.4 b56528 on WinXP Pro SP2.

       

      Freshly installed VMW Server and after resetting the computer (without even running VMW Console) I get an application event error.

       

       

      here are 6 events that appear at once, every 5 seconds, flooding the event viewer.

       

      1. Description:

      The description for Event ID ( 100 ) in Source ( vmauthd ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: Failed to read registry perf object Memory\Committed Bytes

      2. Same description but: Failed to read registry perf object Memory\Pool Paged Bytes
      3. Same description but: Failed to read registry perf object Memory\Pool Nonaged Bytes
      4. Same description but: Failed to read registry perf object Memory\Pool Faults/sec
      5  Same description but: Failed to read registry perf object Process\ID Process
      6. Same description but: Failed to read registry perf object Memory\Cache Bytes

       

      Already visited and performed actions explained here:

       

       

      Stating the obviuos:  If I stop the VMware Authorization Service, the problem goes away; then of course VMware is disconnected and doesn't function.

       

       

      Services and running processes are shown on the attached file.

       

       

      No success.

       

       

      Please help.
