    VMWare Player fails to install on Win7 x64 Home Premium

    pswayne Lurker

      I have tried several times, and can't install VMware Player on my Win7 x64 Home Premium notebook. VMware Player.msi won't run. ( I had no problems installing it on my desktop, however.) Here's the fail section of the log file:

      Any help would be appreciated.
