Anyway to disable `side channel mitigations` in VMware Workstation 16 Player?

So I've done some reading and all I can find is how to disable it in `Workstation Pro`. If it's only available in `Workstation Pro` why would `Workstation Player` tell me I could disable it? I hope this isn't done intentionally to try to pressure users into making a `Pro` purchase. Please advise.

I really appreciate the help. Thank you.

Well, I assume that it's simply based on the fact that the Pro, and Player binaries are similar.

Take a loo at e.g. https://communities.vmware.com/t5/VMware-Workstation-Player/Poor-performance-after-update-with-messa... for how to disable it manually.
