Installation problem of VMware workstation

Hello ,

I m trying to install VMware workstation10 but it showing me the error  " MSI failed. Could not write value to key \system\currentcontrolset\services\vmware\performance. Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel.".

I tried with Run as Administrator option also. But it doesn't work also.

How to solve this error?

Please help!!

You say "I m trying to install VMware workstation10" yet the attached "vmware error.png" image say Workstation 9.

The interesting part about the "vmware error.png" image is it shows a folder called "VMware Workstation 9.0.2 Build 1031769 Final" with the installer and Serial and it's obvious this is an illegal distribution and stolen serial number and as such help cannot be provided as it would violate the Community Terms of Use | United States which you have agreed to when signing up.
