    "VMware Workstation Pro can't run on Windows" Message

    Just FWIW only ...
    I, myself, initially skipped/forgot the step: "grant Full Control permissions to Administrators, click OK"
    My mistake, of course, but Windows did not allow change permissions then.
    I needed to do that step and it worked fine. Maybe you skipped that step as well?
    I am not an expert, just my 2cents only...

    If you have any problems with installing simply uninstall your previous version and download the new one manually. (Don't forget your serial number though when re-installing !!!). Re-boot after uninstalling previous version and re-install.

    I've tested both methods on 2 identical laptops (upgrade, uninstall and re-install new version) - both worked for me.

    Cheers

    Update 1903 refuses to install, reason VMWare Workstation Pro 10

    Hi Igor,

    I was maybe not clear: the 1903 update cannot be done.

    At "Status: installing -25%" I get a message that VMWare Workstation Pro is outdated.

    If I try to continue the Windows update, it always stops on the VMWare message. It shows 2 main links. One of the links leads to the site of VMWare and invites to download VMWare Player 14 (which does not support Windows 2000). The other one tells me that
    the concerned "app" has to be updated or uninstalled.

    My aim: continue de Windows Pro update 1903 without updating or uninstalling VMWare Workstation Pro 10.

    Kind regards

    Dan
