Well, if VMware Workstation is essential for you and since VMware Workstation is a
product from a company called VMware I would think you'd check their compatibility
charts. Looking at
I see only Fedora 22 listed as being supported by them. I'm sure you'll agree
the Fedora community isn't responsible for providing a solution to getting VMware
Workstation running on Fedora. But, it would appear that some have tried and have
succeeded with information they found on the internet. Unfortunately, that seems not
to have worked for you.
Certainly you are frustrated since you "give up". But I think you'll agree
frustration should be directed at VMware and not at the Fedora Community.
I see they also only support up to Ubuntu 15.04 and not the most recent release
Ubuntu 17.04 and they don't even support Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS.
Now, things may have changed but I believe VMWare Workstation is a purchased
product? At least that is the impression I get when I go to
and see a "Buy
button. Also, the last time I did have VMware Workstation (many years ago) you only
were given 30 days of support....but could purchase a support package by incident.
So, maybe contact them and query them on why that are slow to support new versions of
Linux? And, since this is VMware centric maybe their forums would be a good place to
get help? You've not mentioned trying that....so maybe you'll get more
