Your error sounds unusual.  Does the /etc/vmware/locations file exist?
This error message would occur if the installation script
(vmware-install.pl) cannot open that file.  If your vmware installation is
broken somehow, uninstall and reinstall might help.

vmware-any-any-update106/runme.pl expects "location" to be in
/etc/vmware. The directory, /etc/vmware, is empty. It would appear
that version 5.5.3 of workstation has moved its files to

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling. Also linking /etc/vmware
to /etc/vmware-tools. Neither works.
