Cannot get VMware Workstation installed on 64-bit Vista

I have tried this several times now and I cannot get VMware Workstation to install on my machine.  It looks like it's installing and then in the end it says the install has been interupted and gives me a finish button.  If I look in c:\program files (x86)\ a VMware folder appears and is populated but then at the last min. it dissapears.  Any ideas why I can't get this to run?

What credentials are you using to install VMware Workstation ? Is UAC enabled in Windows Vista ?

It was 5.5.2 and I was using my admin credentials with UAC disabled.  I ended up downloading the trial of the latest greatest version and it installs but I haven't gotten it working yet. It still can't open my old VMs so I guess i'll just make a new one ><
