To make a long story short, I am trying to install VMware Workstation 7.1.1 on my Windows 7 64bit machine (after a nasty VMware 7.0.1. uninstall). I have finally gotten it to the point where I can run the install (exe or msi) for Workstation and it gets almost to the end and throws this error.
Error 1723. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action VM_perfMonInstall.05A3DB77_E7FB_4275_AA00_2FC19218E5DA, entry: VMInstallPerfmon, library: C:\Windows\Installer\MSI754C.tmp
It's weird... because by this point in the install the VMware Workstation icons have been added, I can open VMware Workstation (as long as I do not close out of the error) and run it, but once i close out of the error it rolls back the install. Does anyone have any ideas on this one? I have no clue at this point.
