      VMWare Workstation 12.5 was working fine on Windows 10 until at some point update.  It came back with a



      Failed to install USB inf file


      The installation log in C:\ProgramData\VMware\logs shows this


      2019-11-17 08:52:07| inst-build-4352448| I1: VNL_InstallVmusb: installing USB inf: 'C:\Program Files\Common Files\VMware\Drivers\vmusb\Win8\vmusb.inf'

      2019-11-17 08:52:07| inst-build-4352448| E1: VNLInstallInfW2K: inf file copy failed: 0x00000005


      Afterwards, Workstation 12.5 stop working.


      I've tried to uninstall & reinstall.  In between many manual cleanup (USB INF failure during install ) & reboots.  Nothing works.  It was working fine before so I'm at my wits end as why a re-installation failed.


      Any advise
