    VMware ACE is not designed to be running a server in a production environment.

    Download and install VMware Server 1.0.5. It's a free virtualization product that runs as a service and supported VM guest startup and shutdown automatically.

      You have to add -a with regedit.


      Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\VMwareHostd


      Name: ImagePath


      Reg_Expand_SZ


      Value: "C:\Programme\VMware\VMware Server\vmware-hostd.exe" -a "C:\Documents and Settings \ All Users \ Application Data \ VMware \ VMware server \ hostd \ config.xml
