Cannot unintall/install VMware Player

Well i removed folder VMware player. Now if i start uninstaller i get error :

Unable to find file bootstrap.lua in the installetion packege, this could be due to package corruption. Vertify that the package has been downloaded correctly.

I kinda already deleted all files from VMware and i cant install the program if i dont uninstall it first.

Hi,

try to run the VMware Workstation installer with the /clean option.

e.g.

VMware-workstation-full-7.1.2-301548.exe /clean

for workstation version 5 it's just /c

Regards
