I downloaded VMware Workstation 8 trial and need to remove it completely. When I try to:

sudo vmware-installer -u vmware-workstation

It returns:

sudo: vmware-installer: command not found

I still have the trial bundle. So how can I remove VMware Workstation?

Long form:

sudo /usr/lib/vmware-installer --uninstall-product PRODUCT

Short form:

sudo /usr/lib/vmware-installer -u PRODUCT

For a list of which products are installed, you may run:

/usr/lib/vmware-installer --list-products


/usr/lib/vmware-installer -l
