Unable to install Centos 64 bit as guest in VMware workstation

I have Windows Ultimate 64 bit as my host. installed vmware workstation 9.0. trying to install Centos 7.0 64 bit.
When I select Centos 64 bit from drop down menu during VM creation it says "64 bit guest operating systems are not supported by this host and will not run."

My processor is Intel 64 bit.(snap attached)

Earlier I had a 32bit WinXP OS. So I formatted and installed Win 7 ultimate 64 bit. But the error persists. Is Win 7 ultimate causing an issue? Am I missing something that I should consider?

Your CPU doesn't support VT.
