I hope you all can help with this as it has me puzzled.
A user has reported they are no longer able to use VMware server 2.02. Upon firing it up in IE or Firefox a connection cannot be made. Upon review i found the reason being was that the VMware host was not starting and in fact would error upon trying to start with the following error
'Windows could not start the VMware Host Agent on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code -1.'
Upon reviewing the event log i find the following error
'The VMware Host Agent service terminated with service-specific error %%-1.'
A repair installation did not resolve the issue, so i tried removing Vmware and then removing the directory folder as well as the folder in the local profile in app data. I also deleted the registry keys for vmware in local computer and current user' I then re-installed the software, but still the issue is occuring
The users OS is windows 7. Vmware had been running fine on it for months up until now. Any ideas?
