i have centos 5 installed in my computer and i want to install vmware.bundle in order to run windows in it. i downloaded

i used the command

#chmod 700 VMware-Workstation-Full-7.1.3-324285.i386.bundle

i didn't get any error with it. but when i tried
./VMware-Workstation-Full-7.1.3-324285.i386.bundle later it says "magic number does not match".

Are you sure your download is complete?

It looks to me like a self extracting shell script. You can open the top with more or vi and see the script section, then the bottom half is the binary that gets extracted and executed.

Seems to me that the binary section is incompatible with your OS architecture. 32 vs 64 bit maybe?

Try to run the script with a bash -x <script> and you should see the script output and exactly what it is doing.
