All was working fine with 12.5 and then I was offered an upgrade and took it. Ooops!
Now all vestiges of VMWare Player and the VMs are all gone!
I downloaded 14 and it will not install it seems.
Back to 12.5.
Anything I should know?
What do you mean that "the VMs are all gone"? If the VM list didn't display on the main page, you can open the VM by "File -> Open a VM".
Well, the emphasis should be on:
"all vestiges of VMWARE are gone"
Hard to deal with VMs without Player, eh?
So, there is no Main Page.
Can you give more details:
The situation was fixed by running DISM and SFC.
