If you get stuck with a VMware installlation (Windows) somewhere between good and evil (e.g. the installer crashed during installation but before registering the uninstall information, and a new install run complains about an incomplete installation) here’s a knowledge base post by VMware which might help:
The following worked for me:
- <Install-Binary> /c (for <7) or <Install-Binary> /clean (for >= 7)
- section “manually cleaning the registry”
- delete program folder
- delete data application folder
- delete files in Windows directories (note: it’s VMNetDHCP.dll, not VMNetDHCP.exe)
Note: the cleanup tool didn’t work for me – the tool started, consumed one CPU but did nothing visible (no time for an investigation).
