Corporate machines are usually standardized, locked-down SOEs. But I don't nderstand why it would trigger the error while uninstalling it! OK, hold on - let me add the original answer I wrote for you before realizing you were in a controlled, corporate environment.
If you see the link I posted above I might be wrong though — John Doe. Thanks for participating!! Add a comment. Sorted by: Reset to default.

I wasn't going to post this - I think I misunderstood your scenario - but here goes, maybe see if some ideas pop up: A few questions: Does this happen with other packages on the box as well?
Do you see the same problem with the VMWare package on other boxes? Do co-workers - with similar login credentials and rights - see the same problem s? Maybe group policy blocks them? Is this a package you downloaded yourself, or is it "blessed" by a sys-admin?
Do you know if this is a bit or bit package? Do you have a tool to open the MSI? Improve this answer. Does this happen with other packages on the box as well? Try to run another package in modify or repair mode? Make it a small package - Orca perhaps?
Orca is quick to reinstall - do you have Visual Studio installed? Turns out this was a corporate thing!!! Yes, pretty much as expected - a little unusual that you didn't get a clearer error message. If you want alternative methods for uninstalling VMware or are looking to uninstall a different version of the software or from a different operating system, you can find plenty of other uninstallation guides here.
Having issues with the previous uninstallation method? As before, this guide is specifically intended for Windows 10, but the process for other Windows operating systems should be similar enough to allow you to follow along. Even without errors, this method should work as an alternative way to uninstall for Windows regardless. The process is as follows:. This time, rather than opening the start menu, right-click on Start. Select the option Command Prompt Admin.
Once you find it in the list of programs, select it, and click Change. The uninstallation wizard should run properly now without errors. Once it prompts for a restart, click Yes. After the reboot, VMware should be completely removed from your system.
This is not the only alternative method out there, as there are plenty of different errors that require various uninstallation methods to work correctly. However, this method has been known to work for a large majority of errors that users have experienced when trying to uninstall VMware Workstation from their device.
For methods on how to uninstall the software on earlier versions of Windows, you can find several guides here. While it may seem overwhelming at first, the installation, configuration, and uninstallation processes of any of these programs are about the same as any other.
Are wanting to u ninstall VMWare Workstation 12? VMware Player? All of the different software offered by VMware will have different methods for their removal. If your goal was to completely reinstall the software, you can now begin the process of a fresh installation. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
