VMware workstation pro 16.1.0 not able to run Virtual Machines on Zbook 15 G5

HP Recommended
HP ZBook 15 G5
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

when i try to run a virtual machine on my laptop the VMWare workstation pro shows the following error messages


"Your Host Does not meet minimum requirements to run VMware workstation with Hyper-V or Device/Credential Guard Enabled"


"Transport (VMDB) error: pipe connection has been broken"



noting that it was working a month ago with no issues, how can i fix this problem? i have searched alot on the internet with no luck

1- Hyper-V is turned off

2- VTx and virtualization for IOT are set to enabled in the bios

3- security based virtualization is being set to disabled in the group policies and in the registry.


any help would be highly appriciated.
