I just downloaded the exe for vmware-workstation-full-8.0.0-471780 from the vmware website, however, when trying to install, upon installing packages, I get the following error message, with the OK button only, and it exits after clicking on the button:
The MSI 'C:\DOCUME~1\USERNAME\LOCALS~1\Temp\vmware_1317123397\vmware workstation.msi' failed.
Setup has detected that VMware Workstation is already installed on this machine. Please uninstall this product through the Control Panel and try again.
I had VMware 7 installed, but removed it before installing this one, and no VMware folder is present in Temp or in my Program Files folder, nor in Add/Remove Programs list on Windows XP.
Anyone can help me how to solve this and install vmware correctly? Now the version 7 as well is not installing, giving the same error as above.
You mentioned somethiong about going back to VMware Player - I had Windows 8 on my mind. Too bad you need to reforma and reinstall the OS. I did point out I think that this was your ultimate solution.
Hi This command worked for me in 64 Bit windows 7 os with latest pach update.
( VMware-workstation-full-8.0.0-471780.exe /z "action"="install" )
Thanks a lot for your support
Thanks and Regards - KK
