My host machine is Windows XP.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 on VMWare Player.
For this I'm using ubuntu-12.10-desktop-i386.iso.

There was not installation process as I used to see: choose this, choose that so on.
I have got a desktop with two shorcuts Exmaples and Install Ubuntu 12.10 at once.
When I click on Install Ubuntu 12.10 nothing happens.

Also I see a strange graphical signs at left side of desktop. I assumes it another shortcuts or panel of instruments. When I mouseover it I see enter image description here

Could anyone help me to run Ubuntu on VMWare under Windows XP?
