VMWARE Workstation Unrecoverable error

Had a strangle problem this evening whilst preparing my lab for my 70-236 exam. I installed the latest version of VMWARE Workstation v6.02 build-59824. It installed perfectly OK but when i attempted to start VMWARE I go the following error:


I had a search on the vmware support site and was told that it may be a DLL registration problem so I tried the following:

regsvr32 “C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmappcfg.dll”
regsvr32 “C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmappsdk.dll”
regsvr32 “C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmdbCOM.dll”
regsvr32 “C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmhwcfg.dll”
regsvr32 “C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmnetBridge.dll”

This did not work. In the end I just ended up running a repair and this worked successfully. Strange stuff! Glad its working, now I can begin building my lab 🙂
