Hi. I'm stuck with the same error: my VM stops loading at the same point shown in the screenshoot of first post.
The VMware log is here.
Does anyone have any idea what can I do to solve it?

Analysing log file I found out the error message Failed to load D3DX9 library.
With help of process monitor I saw VMware player was trying to load dll d3dx9_40.dll but wasn't able to find it.
After some research on google I discovered it's a DirectX dll. More specififcally, version 9 (windows 7 comes with version 11).
I read a page were it was recommended to install DirectX from Microsoft site (according to what was on page there is no problem to have multiple versions of DirecX installed).
I installed DirectX and the d3dx9_40.dll was successfuly loaded by VMware player but the problems keeps exactly the same.
I haven't saw any new hint in the log file. You can see new log file here.
Any help is appreciated.

Would you be able to run dxdiag on your machine and post the logs? You can run from Start Menu->Run. I don't see anything obvious standing out in your VMWare logs.
I also noticed that you're using VMWare version 4.0. Would you be able to edit the vmx file to change the virtualHW.version from 8 to 7?
