Error 2732 While Installing VMware Workstation 8

Asked By 80 points N/A Posted on -

I want to try the new VMware Workstation 8, so I went to the VMware website to download the trial version.

I want to do a clean install, so I first removed the older version installed on my Windows 7 PC and cleaned up the TEMP folder. I ran the setup file of the trial version, but the following Error 2732 popped out: 

Error 2731. Directory Manager not initialized.

VMware Workstation

Error 2731. Directory Manager not initialized.

VMware Workstation

Please wait while Windows configures VMware Workstation

I didn't know what happened. Has anyone encountered the same error?

How can I resolve it?

Hi Halin Dan,

This is a MSI bug, and naturally you need to do a MSI Bugfix. But this is another long process and also critical I think.

Otherwise I like to advise you to download the file again and try. Hope you understand the point. Thanks

VMware Workstation 8 should be installed on 64 bit hardware and Windows 7 OS.

Install as Administrator by either logging into the administrator or right clicking and "Run as administrator"

If that doesn't fix the problem, :

TRy changing the "environment variables". This can be done by 

  • Go to control panel >> system >> advanced system settings
  • select environmental variables in the advanced tab.
  • Copy the TEMP AND TMP details to a file for changing later.
  • Change "TEMP" and "TMP"  entries to "C:Temp"

now install using the administrator privileges.

After installation change the TEMP and TMP variables to the usual values!
