    VMware Workstation failed to start the VMware Authorization Service.

      I upgraded to VMware Workstation Pro 14 and recently did an update. Following the update, when I try to power on my virtual machine I get the following error message:

       

      "VMware Workstation failed to start the VMware Authorization Service. You can try manually starting the VMware Authorization Service. If this problem persists, contact VMware support."

       

      I reentered my license key several times and restarted the application but the problem persists. I have 306 Days left on my key and wasted 5 with this issue. Am I doing something wrong?
