    Win XP home, SP3
    Was having an issue installing vmware server. I found out that the Application Management service was stopped. Attempts to restart give me a specified module not found error. Any ideas?

    Thanks for your kind reply, Victoria. This isn't an issue with the guest OS. Haven't gotten that far yet. Netstat worked for IPSEC because it's a network related service. In Contrast appmgmt service is related to ADD/REM progs. I've read that the dll for this service was written wrong or something for XP home and that there's a hot fix. Thankfully, they did not provide any more details or I might have had it fixed by now. I was unable to completely uninstall VMwareserver which means I can't install wkstn. So I have been trying to reinstall server. Before the install is done it tells me it needs an MSI file. I tried redownloading VMS, but always get the same. Which brings me back to appmgmt

    Yeah I see there is a hotfix for Win server 2003, vista and 7 I'm trying to find the hotfix for xp for you but no luck so far. I'll keep looking. From what I've gathered you're correct the issue is missing dll file...
    A supported fix is available for Windows Server 2003. There is no fix available for Windows XP. -http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925336

    I see there is a vmware converter http://www.vmware.com/support/converter/doc/releasenotes_conv301.html that is compatible. I'm really shocked that they haven't resolved the compatibility with XP..Odd...I'll let you know if I find anything useful.
