VMware Player 4.0.3. on Ubuntu 12.04 32 Bit

I installed VMware 8.04 on Ubuntu 10.04. When I run the VMware workstation, it shows the message like

"Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel".

Please help me how to solve this.

@aking1012 This isn't a dupe of that question, because that question is about an Ubuntu 12.04 specific problem that is fixed by a patch specific to kernel version 3.2. – Eliah Kagan Jul 12 '12 at 11:27

That message usually contains an OK or Next button that will proceed to build the modules.

If not, open a terminal and type:

vmware-modconfig --console --install-all
