how can i uninstall vmware workstation 12 from windows 10?
in the windows 10 control panel for app removal, the "modify" and "uninstall" buttons are greyed out when selecting vmware.
there is no "uninstall.exe" file in the vmware installation folder.
I'm afraid it's not an issue with VMware. "Modify/Uninstall" being greyed out normally means that you don't have (enough) local admin rights. So, is your host on a LAN/intranet? Did you use the same user account to install the VMware earlier, which may not guarantee that you can uninstall VMware with the same user account? If it's a stand-alone machine, you can use a local admin account to uninstall it; if it's on LAN/intranet, you can ask your SA to uninstall it for you.
Perhaps it's your turn to show us something, e.g. some screenshots of your installer before/when it's running, VMware when running and etc. In any case, it doesn't look like a problem with VMware.
Same issue for me.
Hope this helps!
As you pointed out even using the old appwiz.cpl there is no direct uninstall available. Other installed software packages have a direct "Deinstall" button in the control panel.
Therefore this is a bug of the installer. Hence it is a bug of VMWare and not of Windows.
Able to kick-start "remove" ... It's should have been simple to integrate on "Add remove Programs" which really su..ks..
Anyway your workaround solution is awesome ! Thanks a lot !
