Yes . VMware Workstation will work fine. You need much more disk space to run virtual machines.
John

Sorry. I misread. 500GB is adequate hard drive space for several machines.

Vmware workstation or player? Yes you can.

You might wish to consider upgrading to 8 GB of memory, But 4 will work for one guest machine given 1 GB of memory

Thanks. Start your machine in BIOS and look in the BIOS for virtualization settings.

Sir one more question I want to ask.  It may be silly I don't know about vmware can we run vmware workstation 12.5.2 on Intel Pentium G2030.
John

Yes it should work fine. Newest version (2 days ago) is 12.5.3.  You can download it and install it and make sure it runs to your satisfaction and then license it after.

What OS do you have on this 4GB Ram host?

Sir can vmware workstation on 32bit Intel Pentium G2030.
John

Yes but you said you were running a 64-bit OS.  With a 32-bit host, you can only run 32-bit operating system. You need to try out first before you buy.

Sorry Sir but I have 2Pc's

It is unusual today for a computer not to be able to run a 64-bit operating system. One of them should do that.

The host machine must have a 64-bit operating system. I thought you did

If your operating system is 32-bit, you need to get a 64-bit operating system. Then you should be fine.

Thanks Sir.

You have a very low specification PC to use for virtualization.

Change OS to 64 bit and upgrade memory or use a newer PC.

Sir 4 GB ram is not enough
Andrew Hancock (VMware vExpert PRO / EE Fellow/British Beekeeper)

The hypervisor e.g. VMware Workstation and Host OS will need memory.

What is left can be used by the Virtual Machine.

But what VM do you want to run?

A 32bit OS has a maximum memory limit of 4GB.

So we are back to upgrade OS to 64 bit so you can at least run the application.

And then consider a memory upgrade if possible.
