“Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.”
Changing Group Policy did not change the error nor did changing file and folder permissions. One solution to execute the file is to:

1. Open a command prompt as Administrator

Eliminate gtk warnings

Friday, July 22, 2016 12:42 pm

The following post helped me out a lot this morning:
https://github.com/rharmonson/richtech/wiki/VMware-Workstation-10-&-gtk2-Errors

Error

When executing the vmware workstation bundle, the following gtk2 errors are displayed:

Extracting VMware Installer…done.
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module “pk-gtk-module”: libpk-gtk-module.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module “canberra-gtk-module”: libcanberra-gtk-module.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Fix

Create a gtk2 configuration file and reload libraries.

~]# echo “/usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/modules” > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/gtk2.conf

~]# ldconfig

Done

The installer should run without gtk2 errors.
