Unable to uninstall _P0_VMWare Workstation Pro (No-Op)

Sometime ago I apparently installed VMWare Workstation Pro on my Dell Win10 desktop. It does not appear in my programs or apps. I don't even remember using it. However, I am unable to update Windows 10 because this program is incompatible and is blocking it. I tried using Revo Uninstall to clean out all vestiges of VMWare on my computer (I did have an old VMWare Player) including the Registry and even my password manager, but this issue keeps appearing. Microsoft Support was unable to help and suggested reinstalling Windows, which I would prefer not to do since that means reinstalling all my programs. I hope someone can provide me with an Uninstall Tool for VMWare that will solve this problem. Thank you for any assitance!

That will make it tricky.

The referenced KB 1308 is known for being not detailed enough.

Do you have any rests of Workstation registry left to figure out the exact version number ?

To figure out the version number it may also help to post the exact file version of any still existing binaries.

If you can figure out the original version - get a copy of the original installer and let the installer do a repair or complete uninstall.

Do you need support with a recovery problem ? - call me via skype "sanbarrow"
