Unhappy Cannot run VMware 12.5 Player


I downloaded and installed 'VMware-Player-12.5.7-5813279.x86_64.bundle' on CentOS 7 without any issues but when I attempt to run it, I get a screen that states that some kernel modules need to be configured... then it fails and it points me to a log to find the cause of the issue. (please see attached screenshot and below log file)

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I searched the web but could not find a solution.

Lenovo B40-80
Intel SSD 225GB
CentOS 7-1708
