It asks for the newest kernel headers (3.8.0-21-generic), so I downloaded them. After pointing to the new path for the file it still does not work. I have tried many solutions but none were successful. This is my first time posting a question, so please tell me if you need more information. Thanks in advance!
I have followed [these instructions] (Unable to start VMWare Workstation after upgrade to 13.04) but "sudo ln -s ../generated/uapi/linux/version.h" yields, "ln: failed to create symbolic link ‘./utsrelease.h’: File exists". So I ran, "sudo ln -sf ../generated/uapi/linux/version.h" but it doesn't appear to do anything.
I tried http://askubuntu.com/a/296551/159739 but I get, "ln: failed to create symbolic link ‘./version.h’: File exists"
Now when I try to launch VMware a pop up reads, "Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel." CANCEL/INSTALL. When I select to install it just closes.
