i reinstalled vmware Tools and Workstation Player but I still get the error:
It could be same as desrtcibed here Incorrect Version of Driver "vmci.sys" not Fixed by Reinstalling Workstation 10.0.4
Resinstalling the vmci driver in Windows isn't an option as I cannot find the hardware item in the device manager.
The only workaround is to turning vmci0 value to false is not at all a good approach.
edit the vmx-file for all VMs and disable vmci
Please search your C: drive for "vmci.sys" to see whether it it is stored in different directories with different versions .
There are three places. I assume one and two are only backups created by VMware.
C:\Program Files\Common Files\VMware\Drivers\vmci\device\Win8
Did you reboot between uninstalling VMware Player and re-install?
Especially if you have driver version issues that is a required step.
that solved it, you are a genius
