Sounds like either the VMware Player or the VMware server application was previously installed. I would go to ad/remove programs and ensure that you remove the software from the system.

If you can’t find it in the list, try installing vmware player again and uninstalling it after you re-install, I’ve gotten some mileage out of this when an app doesn’t uninstall completely.

    That is an odd problem for a fresh installation. VMware checks for previous installation logs. You typically have to remove previous versions of VMware products before upgrading or downgrading. I know what you are thinking and yes, there are actually reasons for downgrading under certain circumstances.
