Hi !

Try to do this at linux console:

vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

You must have linux headers package in your system.

Did you even look in the .log file like the message box stated? Also are you using 7.0.0 or 7.0.1 as you should be using the later for that Host OS.

You can't run VM when XEN enabled.

Remove XEN.
