Windows 10 1903 + Workstation 15.5 Pro cannot run as standard user


I have installed (as local administrator) VMware Workstation 15.5 Pro on Windows 10 build 1903 at one of our’s laptop. This laptop belong to standard user ( non admin) who canno’t run Vmware Workstation.

I have tried change ntfs permission for entire C:\Program Files (x86)\Vmware for standard user to modify and tried add user to group __vmware__ but with no luck.

Only solution are disabling UAC for entire workstation or add user to local administrators.

Due to our security policy we cannot do that.


Any suggestions?
