I have resolved the issue by removing the usb hub root controller (uninstalling it) and also clean installing VMware from scratch hope this helps other people, was a nightmare to sort out.
I've got similar issue - VM works fine on Win8.1 but on Win10 a special usb device (Superpro license dongle) is not found and similar usb driver error is notified.
can you please clarify what specific devices you removed from where (host/guest) to resolve.
help would be greatly appreciated.
UPDATE - reread your suggestion and its sorted out now.
1. I had already run a re-install/repair to revive the Bridged Network adapter that had vanished however the usb drivers still would not function
2. Complete remove and install of VM Workstation 11.1.2 and usb is restored.
THANKS FOR THE SUGGESTION - Windows 10 now fully operational with all apps and drivers
