Just install Workstation on the new PC and enter the same serial number.  Then remove Workstation from the old PC.

Windows hosts

To locate the Workstation serial number in the Windows registry:

Click Start > Run, type regedit, and press Enter.

Navigate to Computer > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > VMware, Inc. > VMware Workstation > License.ws.x.x > Serial.

Note: For 64-bit versions of Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista, the serial number is located at Computer > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > VMware, Inc. >VMware Workstation > License.ws.x.x > Serial.

Linux hosts

On Linux hosts, you can find the Workstation serial number in the /etc/vmware/license-ws-XX-XX-XXXXXX file in the your home directory.
