Try manually creating the directory 'Socket6-0.23-rhel6' under the path './lib/5.10/'. Once created, invoke the installation script.

Under the path </usr/lib/vmware-vcli/bin>, are there any remnants of <vmware-dcli> from the previous failed installations? If yes, delete them and re-initiate the installation.

Cheers,
