Error while installing VMWare:

  • #25355

    When I try to run the VMWare player in Windows 7, I’m getting following error:
    “C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Temp\vmware_1368439669\vmwareplayer.msi” failed.

    Can you please let me know what could be the reason? (I deleted Temp folder and tried running the msi, but same error)

    Hi Santosh,

    As this is an issue with VMware player you should really look the VMware for support on this. However are you running the installer as Administrator?
