VMWare Workstation 11 can not run on Windows 7 32 bit OS?

When I run VMware Workstation 11 in Windows 7 32 bit OS it says:

Error: This product can only be installed on 64 bit Windows 7 or newer operating Systems.

Where is download link for Windows 7 32 bit compatible VMware Workstation 11?

I'm afraid there is no download available for 32-bit hosts.

The host system must have a 64-bit x86 CPU that meets the following requirements ...

Here's a knowledge base article which clarifies the 64-bit host OS requirement.

Workstation 11.x only supports 64-bit host operating systems
