Hello Everyone, Here is one more post related to VMware. You might have faced 'Error 2732' error while trying to install new VMware version, VMware Workstation 8.

Uninstalled old version of VMware Workstation.

Solution:

Make sure you are installing VMware Workstation 8 on 64 bit hardware and Windows 7 OS.

Try to install VMware as Administrator. You can right click on the set up file and select 'Run as Administrator'.

If that doesn't fix the problem, try this:

Change 'Environmental Variables' on Windows 7 before installation starts.

Open control panel -> system -> advanced system settings

On the advanced tab - > select environmental variables

Copy what is listed for "TEMP" and "TMP" to notepad for changing back after installation

Change the entries for "TEMP" and "TMP" to "C:\Temp"

Install VMware using Elevated Access (Run as Administrator)

Now, change the Environment Variables to normal mode.
