VMWare Workstation UI timed out error

I Have a HP Pavilion DV7 running Windows 7 64bit 4gb ram

I am trying to install VMWare Workstation as part of a car communication software install, every time I get the same timed out error, I have downloaded from internet the same version, the latest version and still the same, so I am guessing the issue is with my machine, even though everything else runs perfectly.

I have no antivirus installed and I have tried turning off the firewall.....no joy.

I have read all sorts online but it is all over my head as everything I try fails.

Is there anyone that can post a resolution that is simple to follow and makes sense to a code dummy?

Anyone please help.
