I installed VMWare 7.0 on Ubuntu 12.10 and when I run it I get an error that says:

VMware Kernel Module Updater  
Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running Kernel.
Kernel Headers 3.5.0-26-generic  
Kernel headers for version 3.5.0-26-generic were not found.  If you installed them in a non-default path you can specify the path below.

Well, I have the headers and no matter what I do to browse to them the Updater will not accept them.

Any ideas why?
