USB controller initialization failed. (VM-Workstation)

My virtual machine is unable to initialize the USB connection to my USB controller. The following message appears when i power on the virtual machine:

"USB controller initialization failed. A supported host USB driver was not found. If you have installed USB traffic monitoring software on the host system, please remove it."

If i uninstall DLP on HOST-Workstation everything works fine.

On ePO (DLP Policy Management) i did not found any special configuration for WS running VM.

any ideas ? configuration suggestions ?

thanx and nice day
