When I run a VM in VMware Workstation 12.0, an error popped up showing "Vmware Authorization service is not running".


my computer has installed Windows 7 ultimate. I tried run it as administrator but this problem pops up.

This error can appear when the VMware Authorization service is stopped or when the service does not have administrator rights.

To fix this problem, you just start the service and make sure that it does have administrator rights.

To start the VMware Authorization service

  • Press Windows Key + X and type services.msc and click OK.
  • Scroll down the list and find that the VMware Authorization service.
  • Click Start the service, unless the service is already is showing a status of Started.
