Sounds like a game specific error and not a VMWare Workstation issue. Most likely it's related to information the game installer created and stored in the registry that the game is looking for. You'd have to to figure out where it is in the registry and export that key then edit it to reflect the path on the guest and re-import it. If you don't know how to do all that then I'd suggest just re-running the installer or client within the guest.

Not sure what this has to do with you running a VM on VMware Workstation.
