VMware Install Error


I tried installing vmware, and it was unsuccesful. I've tried since then, and I keep getting this error message after a "successful" install:
Quote:
Before running VMware Workstation for the first time, you need to configure it
by invoking the following command: "/usr/bin/vmware-config.pl". Do you want this
program to invoke the command for you now? [yes]

Making sure VMware Workstation's services are stopped.

sh: line 1: /etc/vmware: is a directory
Unable to stop VMware Workstation's services.

Execution aborted.
I've tried /usr/bin/vmware-uninstall.pl and redownloading and reinstalling, nothing works. Tips?

manually stop all the vmware services before running the config.pl
they scripts should be in /etc/rc.d/initd or something like that
depending on your distrobution.
to stop the vmware services go into the initd folder and type
the name of the vmware service (ls to get a list) stop
ie vmware stop
then run the config.pl file
