maybe this could help:

delete all keys from Windows Registry for Vmware software: HKLM\Software\VMware, Inc.\VMware Workstation

Under the Control Panel - Services - Stop all VMware Service (i.e beginning with VMware)

Delete all file under C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation

That is band-aiding the issue and not resolving it.
Also editing the registry is not recommended for average users.


Something is wrong with your msi package.

Try this first: Use option 2. If this fails try another option.

1.) SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

2.) Then try the windows troubleshooter:

Hi there
This isn't an answer to your question - but a piece of advice for others - and hopefully yourself for the future.

Before installing any piece of complex software ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR SYSTEM before you install. That way when you want to get rid of it you simply restore the image -- no registry cleaners etc etc. A minor pain with this is that if you've installed other software since you installed VMware you'll have to re-install it - but the backup method is always the safest - and you should always have backup.

(Keep the OS on a separate partition to your DATA so when restoring the OS you don't lose your data).
