Do the below steps:
First, confirm that the service is included and ticked in the Services tab of msconfig

Start –> Run (or Windows-r)
type msconfig
click the Services tab
locate ‘VMware Authorization Service’
(P.S. you may hide all Microsoft services to reduce the list)
If you can find the service ticked, but its status is Stopped, then attempt to restart it with the following steps:

Start –> Run (or Windows-r)
type services.msc
locate the ‘VMware Authorization Service’
right-click and select Start
