WS 7 and VMplayer 3 detect existing versions though there are none

Even if you never had any other versions of Workstation or VMplayer installed the setup complains about existing versions and exits.
It may also detect running processes from older versions though there are none.

Workaround:
open a cmd as administrator
change directory to where you have stored the setup
then run

VMware-player-3.1.2-301548.exe /z "action"="install"

 

replace the version number to match the one you have
