error in opening VM power ON


hi just wanted to ask. .every time I open the POWER ON button of my VM.. this messge always appears :

Unable to Change Virtual machine power state. The process exited with an error. End of error message.

actually sir when i ran the RUNME.pl of the update i saw the vmmon module loaded.. il paste the output because i have save the process in a notepad. .just wondering on why i have to re-RUN it every time i power ON the VM GUI. . . as THE_JinJ said.. yes i have browsed some sites in google and i saw the common problem is the permission/ownership of the vmware files including ~./vmware --- il be updating this post as soon as i get back to working on my vmware again..


THANKS to you GUYS. . .
