What's the specific problem that happens when you try to install VMware? – Eliah Kagan Mar 19 '13 at 22:20
Ubuntu get crashed and can't start again i tried to make fsck and recover it but its fully crashed so i tried several times with diffrent version of Vmware 9.0.0 and 8.1.0 and both get crashed – user141809 Mar 19 '13 at 22:56
This is still very vague. What do you mean by "get crashed"? What happens when you try to start it again? – Eliah Kagan Mar 20 '13 at 5:41

vm-vare has problems on Ubuntu in some cases. Try virtual-box. I am using virtual-box on WUBI 11.10 and it works perfectly.
