I can't install VMware player 16 in Windows 10 Host

Jump to solution

Hi, I am using Windows10 Pro (20H2) as my host system. And I trying to install vmware player 16.1.0.

I can't install vmware player due to an error message :

Install can't continue: Microsoft runtime DLL install application is not able to complete this installation.
(Please refer to attachment for my screen shot)

I am using traditional chinese windows10, so sorry I can't get the system message in English.

But, If there is anyone know this issue. It will be great help for me.

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

I don't know this error..
Perhaps it is what it says? It is possible that the download was corrupted.

Try downloading a fresh copy.

Hi,

Basically the problem is that the latest Microsoft Visual C++ runtime doesn't want to install via the VMware Player installer.

Have a look at the following blog post.

Most likely the steps presented down there will help you get past this issue.

I update the Visual C++ package. and the installation is working....YA...

But, during the installation, I got another error. It shows "Player.cab" is not found.

I have google it. But I can't find answer for this.

Would you please help me on this. Thank you.

BTW, I have running Vmware player for years. It's my first time to get so many errors during setup.

What's happening....
