Why does VMWare Player give me an error when trying to install?

Hari K August 28, 2013

How do I resolve this error?

“The MSI ‘C:\Users\******\AppData\Local\Temp\vmware_******\vmwareplayer_x64.msi’ failed” during VMWare Player installation?

I’m trying to use VMWare Player 5.0.2.

    Just on the off-chance - the error refers to an x64 installer, built for 64 bit machines (running a 64 bit OS). Is there a chance you're using a 32 bit machine or a 32 bit version of Windows?

    If so, look for a 32 bit download (x86, not x64) and see if that works instead.
