VMware Workstation - Don't want to install

Hello SF members :)

I have one problem.
I want to install VMware Workstation 9 and to try it. I downloaded Trial version.

When I run installation, select where I want to install it and start installation it closes. There isn't any error or something like error, just exit.

How to fix it and continue install ?

Thanks in advance.
