vmware 2 ui wont display (host agent service stops)

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Have installed vmware server 2 on a 2008 x32 DC. The web page ui does not come up. I think it may be because the vmware host agent service is not started. When I start it it starts then stops in about 3 seconds. I get the following error in event logs:

Faulting application vmware-hostd.exe, version, time stamp 0x48c8fc0e, faulting module MSVCR80.dll, version 8.0.50727.1434, time stamp 0x4757746d, exception code 0x40000015, fault offset 0x000046b4, process id 0x10a4, application start time 0x01c997054188926d.
