Opening VMWare as a Restricted User


Recommended Posts

everytime i launch VMWare Server 1.0.5 while logged as a Restricted User i get the following error:

VMware Server unrecoverable error: (vmui)

Cannot get temporary directory for log file.

on the other hand, VMWare opens fine if i use Run As > Administrator. note that i'm not talking about the VMs.... those are fine. it's VMWare -- the program -- which refuses to load under non-Administrator accounts. is that normal? my guess is that i have a permission problem, but i cant find it. i've tried re-installing VMWare Server several times, but it's been pointless.

any suggestions? btw, my Host OS is Windows XP Home.
