I have an error "VMWare Workstation" and unable to boot virtual machines.

Error:    "VMWare Workstation    Transport (VMDB) error -14: Pipe connection has been broken."
VMWare Workstation version:   VMWare Workstation 15 Pro 15.5.1
OS:   Windows 10 Pro 64bit

After I upgrade VMWare Workstation 15 Pro from "VMWare Workstation", the error started appearing.
I deleted "lck" folder, but it did not work. I also created a new Virtual machine from OVF exported file., but then still the same error message popped up.

I need your assistance to solve this error message with detail step by step guidance.
