Error While powering on: The VMware Authorization Service is not running.

To fix this error i go to:

"Start / Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Services, clicked on VMware Authorization Service in the list & click the Start link on the left."

but i have to do this every time i want to use the Vitual Machine .

Does anyone know a permanent solution?

i've also tried double clicking it and changing startUp type = "Automatic". But that did'nt work
