    Have any of you had this problem with VMware Workstation 6 in Vista?

    If you search around like I've been doing lately you'll find that VMware doesn't install correctly in Vista for many people. I've found that I'm not the only person who's seen to dreaded "Application failure. hr = 0x80004003: (null)" error.

    The solutions on most forums only apply to XP or involve modifying a ridiculous amount of registry keys and registering all kinds of DLLs.

    That thread is about upgrading to VMware Workstation 6, are you upgrading? What version of WS6 are you installing? The latest is 6.02. When you install under Vista are you right-clicking the icon and selecting "Run as Administrator"?
