I am installing on windows 7. The vmware workstation version is 9.0.2-1031769.
Installation proceeds as expected until about 70% when it fails with the following error:
The MSI '' failed.
I have followed every single step on this supposed fix except that I was not able to delete a coupled of files in the temp directory but I do not think they are related to vmware. And it still didn't work.
Next I deleted every single reference to vmware in the registry also to no avail.
