CentOS 7 - Not able to open vmplayer


I have CentOS 7 64 bit. I have installed open-vm-tools on it.
I have installed vmplayer using
Code:
./VMware-Player-6.0.1-1379776.x86_64.bundle
Now when I try to open vmplayer on it, it does not load 'Virtual Network Device'
and shows error in terminal
Code:
Failed to build vmnet.  Failed to execute the build command.
When I check status of vmware, it shows
Code:
Module vmnet not loaded
If I try to run
Code:
vmware-modconfig --console --install-all
It gives me following error.
Code:
make: Leaving directory `/tmp/modconfig-2NfFeS/vmnet-only'
Unable to install all modules.
I am not able to open VMplayer, please help me to open it.

Thanks

--Kind Regards
Sam

Thanks for the reply...
No, not 100% but i know it is good solution of my problem.
Actually I have multiple vmdk files and a vmx file. It is a virtual appkiance.

I have opened the vmx file as existing virtual machine on vmware of another system and virtual appliance worked perfectly.

I dont know how to open it in this scenario.

Please help.

you have not said so i can only guess
Have you read through the RHEL7 VMware documentation
http://partnerweb.vmware.com/GOSIG/RHEL_7.html

in particular
Code:
su -
yum install open-vm-tools

VMware-Player-6.0.1-1379776.x86_64.bundle looks little old package for CentOS 7. I think you should try to install VMware-Player-7.0.0-2305329.x86_64.bundle

It has been created for Recent distributions like RHEL 7.

But remove VMware-Player-6 completely first then you should install VMware-Player-7 otherwise conflicting of packages may be an irritating problem.
