Error starting Simulator 8.0.1 after install


After apparently successfully installing both the vmware server and the simulator it wont give me a console.

Message follows:

Cannot access virtual machine console. The request timed out.

The attempt to acquire a valid session ticket for "vsim-cm1" took longer than expected. If this problem persists, contact your system administrator.

Am barely conversant with vmware, but the vmware guest is powered on.

Obviously I have missed something.

Thanks in advance!

After 3 more tries, with uninstalls, just to make sure I followed the directions there is still no joy in mudville.

I keep getting the same error.  I cant help but think there is something missing in the directions about

configuring the vmserver to run the simulator.
