Vmware workstation error code 0xc00000005

Kept getting error code 0xc00000005 when trying to install windows 2019 as a guest on VMware workstation. I uninstalled and tried VirtualBox and got a different error. Searching the log files lead me to the following post about hyper-v interference. I had uninstalled Hyper-v but there must have been some hyper-v feature left. The following commands worked.

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

DISM /Online /Disable-Feature:Microsoft-Hyper-V
