I'm really going nuts trying to figure out why I can't install VMWare Player on my PC. I'm running Win8 x64
At first I ran the installer which completes with errors. The error is this:
I bypassed this by copying the temporary folder created during the installation on my desktop and running the vmwareplayer_x64.msi manually. Everything seems to go ok when suddenly I get an "failed to install the hcmon driver" error.
I've tried following these instructions Installing VMware Player via MSI failed (which are on the vmware support site as well) but I can't even find the "non-plug and play drivers" section and on the internet I can't find how to fix this.
I've also tried running the installation as administrator but with no success.
Any suggestion? Thank you in advance!
