Welcome!
Today i made a Virtual Machine where ReactOS will be running in VMware Workstation 12 PRO.
I put the ISO in, when it booted i selected "LiveCD". After it really booted in to the GUI i set up my settings (Language: English | Keyboard layout: US) and clicked "Next". After that i ran ReactOS live form the CD and it worked fine, i restarted, did the same steps and selected "Install ReactOS", after that it showed a message saying: "Userinit failed to start the installer !".

Hi, and welcome!
The procedure you've tried here to attempt to install ReactOS here doesn't work because this graphical version of the installer doesn't exist *yet*. The only solution you have so far, for installing ReactOS, is to download the separate "bootcd" (which is just an installation ISO) and install ReactOS. The first stage of the installation goes in text-mode, then it reboots into graphics mode.

It is currently work in progress by me (see the last line in the section "Changes planned (2018)" of https://reactos.org/wiki/0.5.0 ).
