    I am having numerous errors with LiveView… I have uninstalled and reinstalled VMware, LiveViewm, and their components numerous times. I have it working on another two (2) machines (one with an almost identical build as the problem machine), but still I cannot get it to work…

    Here is my most recent log…

    I am running a Windows XP Prof (x64) system…. As stated before the amount of times I have uninstalled and reinstalled is too numerous to count… =)

    Any help would be appreciated… Thanks!!
