Cannot load a Linux on VMWare

I am unable to load a Linux image on VMWare. I keep getting the following error messages:

1. Could not open /dev/vmmon: Broken pipe. Please make sure that the kernel module 'vmmon' is loaded.

2. Failed to initialize monitor device.

3. Transport (VMDB) error -14: Pipe connection has been broken

Please advise.

Hi,

The steps from dlhotka in this thread:

Re: Could not open /dev/vmmon: Broken pipe error on 11.5.5 but not on 11.5.3?

should normally help for resolving this.
