This means that you must have a 64-bit guest capable host running your VMWare product. This requires that your host machine is Intel-VT or AMD-V capable, and that this mode is enabled in the BIOS. The host does not have to be running a 64 bit OS, like Windows XP 64 if these features are enabled in BIOS. For more information about VMWare 64 bit guest requirements, see VMWare's knowledge base article: Hardware and Firmware Requirements for 64bit Guest Operating Systems

VMWare has a tool that can be run to see if a host can support 64 bit guests. You can download it from here: http://downloads.vmware.com/d/details/processor_check_5_5_dt/dCpiQGhkYmRAZQ==

Only can be run on a Windows host, so if you are using ESX this utility can not be used.
