I Am trying to uninstall vmware server of my machine after an unsuccessful install, while running the perl script to uninstall the software i was presented with the following error message:-

 chris@ubuntu-vmware:~$ sudo /home/chris/Desktop/vmware-server/bin/vmware-uninstall.pl'/vmware-uninstall.pl'
sudo: /home/chris/Desktop/vmware-server/bin/vmware-uninstall.pl/vmware-uninstall.pl: command not found
chris@ubuntu-vmware:~$ sudo /home/chris/Desktop/vmware-server/bin/vmware-uninstall.pl
Uninstalling the tar installation of VMware Server.

Unable to find the answer INITSCRIPTSDIR in the installer database
(/etc/vmware/locations). You may want to re-install VMware Server.

Execution aborted.

If anybody could help it would be much appreciated,
thanks
