The recommended solution for this problem is to go to the registry editor and remove the following registry key and sub-keys:

HKLMSoftwareWow6432NodeVMware, Inc.

After that try installing from the scratch and the installation will continue successfully.

The solution for this error is to remove registry key (and sub keys):
HKLMSoftwareWow6432NodeVMware, Inc.

After this, the installation will proceed successfully.

The only thing under the VMware, Inc. Registry key is a "volatile" key with a UUIDHost DWord under it.

 Export the key, removed it, installed PowerCLI, and the import volatile key back in

Or just Clink  ”ignore” in the error and later reinstall it. Exported the volatile key, re-ran the install which then offered the "Repair" option, then imported the key.

Will work fine then..
