    Workstation 11 - install error 29141

    rasmuso Novice

      Hi

       

      I cannot install VMware Workstation 11 on my Windows 8.1 x64 laptop.

      When I run the installer it stops with the error: "The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 29141."

       

      I have tried with two different installers. Both of the installers work on another computer.

      If I extract the package and run the MSI installer with logging parameter, I can see some more details in the log:

       

      The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 29141. The arguments are: Vstor2 MntApi 2.0 Driver (shared)

      MSI (s) (4C!34) [12:40:39:047]: Product: VMware Workstation -- The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 29141. The arguments are: Vstor2 MntApi 2.0 Driver (shared)

      CustomAction VM_InstallVstor.9780576B_1174_42AC_86E1_51DC42DC62C6 returned actual error code 1603 (note this may not be 100% accurate if translation happened inside sandbox)

       

      Hyper-V was removed before trying to install VMware Workstation 11.

      I cannot install Workstation 10 either.


      Any help is very appreciated.
