I am trying to install VMware Player 6.01 on my Windows 8.1 PC. But I am having a syntax error and I can't continue with the installation. Choosing on the Yes button will just close the error but it will randomly appears again. Can someone tell me what to do? Thanks!
The error message I am receiving is:
An error has occurred in the script of the page.
Error: Expected ')'
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?
Script Error on VMware Player 6.0.1 Installation
Have you tried re-downloading VMware Player again? This may be because of a corrupted installer. But to make it sure, you need to validate first the installer files MD5/SHA1 checksum so we can know if it's due to corrupted installer. Such the one that is shown below:
If the manufacturer includes checksums then you need to validate the file before you start the installation so you can know if it's corrupted and avoid any issues from attempting to install. You can also try to extract the VMware player installer file and install from the .msi file. Use the command below:
VMware-player-*.exe -e c:vmptmp
This when done, run the proper .msi file. Remember that .msi file extension is hidden but from "Type", you can find Windows Installer Package.
