Running VMware Workstation 12 on Windows 10 and I'm getting the below error message when trying to launch a Linux install. This was working previously but for some reason It's stopped. Also note I went into the BIOS and found virtualization disabled (not sure how that happened) but it's still not working. I've been trying to see how to disable 'trusted execution' but I don't see that anywhere. Also, I have an ASUS BIOS.

Here is the error message:

Error in Screenshot when I try to launch the VM

This virtual machine is configured for 64-bit guest operating systems. However, 64-bit operation is not possible.

This host supports Intel VT-x, but Intel VT-x is disabled.

Intel VT-x might be disabled if it has been disabled in the BIOS/firmware settings or the host has not been power-cycled since changing this setting.

(1) Verify that the BIOS/firmware settings enable Intel VT-x and disable 'trusted execution.'

(2) Power-cycle the host if either of these BIOS/firmware settings have been changed.

(3) Power-cycle the host if you have not done so since installing VMware Player.

(4) Update the host's BIOS/firmware to the latest version.
