Hai Antonio Philippe,
To fix the error, you have to delete a registry entry. Then only the installation will continue without any error.
The location for the registry entry is : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeVMware, Inc.
For this you have to open the run program. Then enter 'regedit' without quotes and press enter. 
Then a window will open. In this window expand the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder, then expand the SOFTWARE folder, then expand the Wow6432Node folder. There you will find a registry named 'VMware, Inc'. Just delete the entry and thats all.
Now run the installating again. Every thing will work perfectly.
Hope these helped.
