Hi,

I was running Vmware Server on windows 2008 64bit. But the server power went off due to power failure. And now VMware registration service is not getting up. But the virtual machines are running it's seems.

Please advice !

Try a repair installation of VMware Server or simply reinstall it over the existing installation. It seems that the file used by the service is corrupt since the power failure. Of course you should shut down all virtual machines during the repair.
