This may be a problem that should be addressed to VMware, but getting a
reply from that source is a pain on the nether regions of the anatomy.
So, allow me to apologize in advance for any unsuitability this missive
may have to this group.
I have Xubuntu running in VMware Player v-5.0.2build 1031769 in Win 7 on
my 64 bit laptop. Everthing is fine until I shutdown the laptop (a
fairly frequent occurrence). When I want to open Xubuntu on rebooting
the computer I get an error message form the VMware Player:
Error while powering on: Transportation Transport (VMDB) error -44:
The VMware Authorization Service is not running.
The solution to the problem is found in MS Win 7 (wonder of wonders) and
involves running services.msc.
Googling the error message gives rise to four hits, three of which are
incomprehensible, at least to me. and the fourth is the Microsoft
solution (not reboot the system, for a change)
If anyone has encountered, and solved, this problem I would be grateful
for the information.
Thanks in advance.
