VMWare Player 12.5 on Windows 10 Pro 64 Stopped Working

I was using VMWare Player 12.5 just fine on Windows 10 Pro 64.
Then was offered an upgrade.
Now it's just gone - entirely.
And it won't install again - the install just freezes.
And 14 won't install.

I was really getting to like it too!

I have VMware Workstation V14 running on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and it works fine. I upgraded from the Version before. I don't think it is a VMware issue.

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth  When done run SFC /SCANNOW

When all complete, restart and try installing Player V14.
