VMware VM Fails to Start

Hello Experts,

I have created a new Windows 7 Professional VM. Unfortunately, I'm getting the error message seen below.

What I don't understand is I have actually installed the OS on my PC and in this instance the VM host is my PC no not sure why I'm getting the message that the CPU is not compatible with 64-bit mode??

Regards

Carlton

Most of the time you see this is when you don't have Intel-VT (Intel CPU) or AMD-V (AMD CPU) enabled on the physical hardware.  Shut down your PC and boot into BIOS.  Enable CPU Virtualization (if it's a CPU that has it) and you should be ok.  What type of CPU and PC are you running?
