Fresh install of vmplayer 5.0.0 build-812388 on fedora 17_x64. I get the 'kernel headers not found' error when launching vmplayer. Kernel headers are installed. I have tried browsing to several folders: /usr/src/kernels/3.5.5-2.fc17.x86_64, /usr/src/kernels/3.5.5-2.fc17.x86_64/include, /usr/include/linux, /lib/modules/3.5.5-2.fc17.x86_64/kernel/drivers and more. Every time I get the error "C header files matching your running kernel were not found."
uname -a confirms that the system is running 3.5.5-2.fc17.x86_64.
I have installed kernel-headers, kernel-devel and kernel-tools.
