After licence agreement I said "y" and is that end of installation? Why it asks to install binary files again??


Code:
Do you accept? (yes/no) y

Thank you.

In which directory do you want to install the VMware VIX API binary files?

"/home/sargeaxa/WMware/vmware".

you didn't install it in the path, you'll have to edit the shortcut in your menu to point to the above directory.

Now you can just modify the menu entry as Dilligaf suggested above to point to the VMware path.

What a hell!? I configured it, and it wants to be configured again! :frowning: Maybe that's because of that one "failed" in that services.

Not necessarily, should work without doing so.
When asked for the directory, just press enter - BUT make sure you ran the original setup as sudo.
