Physical Memory Error In VMware Workstation

Microsoft Dynamics GPWhen I joined Perfect Image they had, unfortunately, standardised on VMware Workstation for virtualisation and I have been stuck using it ever since (we have recently been transitioning to Hyper-V which I intend to start using exclusively once I can get all the VMs either converted or recreated).

I was away for a demo the other week and the night before I tried to launch the demo VM to do some final preparation when I got the following error:

GP Demo - VMware Workstation: Not enough physical memory is available to power on this virtual machine with its configured settings.

GP Demo - VMware Workstation>/p>

Not enough physical memory is available to power on this virtual machine with its configured settings.

This error message was a baffling one as I had run the VM a couple of days previously with no problems and had made no changes to the laptop in the intervening period.

The fix was a rather odd, yet simple one: launching VMware Workstation using Run as Administrator allowed the application to launch and the VM work without further problem.

Since doing this I have been able to launch the VM at any time under my usual security context.

What should we write about next?
