Tip on getting VM Workstation machines to start to Host boot

If you want to auto start a guest image, perform the following steps…

1) VMware Guest Machine > Settings > Options > Power
Check the box, “Power on after opening this virtual machine”

2)Right-click on the Guest .VMX file and make sure VMware Workstation is the default application associated with .VMX file type.

3) Add the .VMX file (as a shortcut) to the Windows Start-up Program group. (If you have VMware WS set to run the guest image “headless”, you can set the Short-cut in Start up to Run: Minimized)
