Hi David,

The error is due to VMware Workstation.msi file.
To resolve this error follow the steps as mentioned below:
1) Click 'Start', type 'cmd', open command prompt

 Open-command-prompt-through-Start-menu

2) Make a temp directory by using the command 'C:/temp'
3) Change the directory to where the VMware Installer is downloaded
4) Extract the .msi installer from the .exe by running the following command: 'cmd/c <VMware Installer name>.exe -e c:/temp'
5) After the command returns, the 'C:/temp' folder contains 'VMware Workstation.msi' and *.cab
6) Run the VMware Workstation.msi by double clicking it in Windows Explorer

Hello there !!

Scrolling over your issue, we do find that you are not able to install the VMware player and you are getting the UI ie. User interface error.. So this generally happens because of the compatibility issue with the application that you want to use. Actually the OS have the 64 bit architecture and you are installing the application compatible with 32 bit architecture of the OS, and if this happens then the user get such type of the error notification. So you just check the compatibility of the application and make ensure that it is compatible with the OS you are using.
