vmnetcfg.exe is required when you want to configure multiple network interfaces (e.g. one local and one wireless) in the same machine.

But where is it?

A bug in the installer prevents the installation of the tool vmnetcfg.exe

Run setup again like this from Command Prompt (CMD):

VMware-player-3.1.1-282343.exe /e .\vmplayer

In vmplayer subdir you will find network.cab - extract it in explorer or 7zip, then find vmnetcfg.exe and copy to c:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Player

I ran into this problem several times before and found the answer in some obscure forum. Figure I'd post the answer here for others and also for me in case I need it again :)

In 4.0.2 the network.cab file has 0 length. –  user12826 Mar 14 '12 at 14:32
    
Worked for me, using 4.0.2 –  Gabe Moothart Apr 12 '12 at 23:07

VMware Player 6.0.1 vmnetcfg.exe file -> download

VMware Player 6.0.2 vmnetcfg.exe file -> download

It was extracted from VMware Workstation 10 as per the instructions here.

Please note that you need both vmnetcfglib.dll and vmnetcfg.exe. You may follow this "step-by-step" tutorial in order to further simplify the explanation.
