Here is my frustration that I wish to share with the community members of this forum. I am technical and have been using VMware Wkstn products since Release 5-->6--->7---->8. Have not had issues with upgrades or installations.
VMware 9 has just frustrated me so much, that even VMware support knowledge base is completely useless. They need to revamp that whole UI interface. Anyway, here is my issue, I am hoping somebody in this forum can help me out.
BTW: All of my VMware prodcuts are purchased directly from VMware store and legally licensed.
Last night I tried to install / upgrade VMware 8 Wkstn to latest VMware 9 Wkstn. It seems it is almost at the tail end of installation and rolls back the installtion with the pop-up message. (Attached).
I tried the exact same installation process on my laptop, same issue with this pop-up.
I never had any issues when I upgraded from 7-->8 as well when applying latest updates.
My system is Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (Desktop and Laptop) with 8GB RAM and Quad Processor. I log in as Administrator on both systems. I mean the actual "administrator" account.
I start my VMware installation process "run as administrator". Although tried both ways (with/without), it does not make any difference whatsoever.
