Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Im thinking its one of few reasons:
- You didnt choose the right settings during installation
- Your OS is not recent enough
- You computer doesnt have the resources to run it
- Your AV is deleting some needed files

Sorry for not answering your question but i cant provide a solution when im not entirely sure what the cause is.

    Is it possible to create a new virtual machine and attach the old virtual disk to the new one ? if so, have you tried that ? Also, the virtual disk file could be corrupt.
