"This virtual machine requires avx2 but avx is not present. This virtual machine cannot be powered on" VMware Workstation 12 Player

Hello, I've recently build a new pc with a Ryzen 5 1600 cpu. After installing vmware im getting this error and I cannot seem to fix it. I have virtualization enabled on the bios and I'm running windows 10 64 bit home. Thanks in advance.

This issue is quite similar to KB 2034362, I would suggest to follow this KB and I believe the VMX file would have been corrupted here.All the best.
