internal error 2753 vmware_netinstall.exe

VMware Knowledge Base - Answer.

Problem Scenario:

Fail to re-install VMware workstation after a harddisk partition crash. The crashed partition formerly carries a virtual linux host. During the process of uninstallation a dialogue box with error message ‘internal error 2753 vmware_netinstall.exe’appears and terminates the process.


The above link provides several methods to clean up incomplete uninstallations. You may download the VMware_Install_Cleaner.exe from the link, run it to clean up the registry and retry the new installation. In my scenario it didn’t work so I tried the second method and download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility as stated here. It worked.
