Have you tried to download and install this directly from the VMware website?

Also I'm assuming this is VMware workstation?

Try downloading a trial version of either 9 or 8 and see if it installs.

Use the VMware Knowledgebase Article to force a cleanup of a failed uninstall.

Restart the computer and try installing from a fresh VMware download.

Another easy solution would be to create a new administrative account, log on as the new administrator, and run the deployment under those credentials. Sounds like the current profile has a bit of pollution going on.

Might even pay migrating the data from that account to the new administrative account, to minimize risk of future deployment issues.
