Hello --- It seems that MS patch KB4524147 had made older version of vmware player invalid --- I tried to install the latest version, but my hardware is old and
the new version will not run
Is there any chance that vmware will fix the older version to they will now run in w10/1903?
If you a getting this error.
Then there are various solutions to fix the problem.
This is known to have been caused by cumulative windows updates.
So uninstalling previously installed updates can solve this problem .
Also prevent uninstalled updates from reinstalling.
FYI, VMware has a statement on this issue, here:
