I download latest VMware Workstation form VMW page, and install it in Ubuntu 13.04. When i run VMW it ask me for activation, so I click "Enter Licence Key" but nothings happen so I can't run machines. Even after restart. Ubuntu 13.04 with Gnome Shell

  • Since VMware is proprietary third party software, you will have to seek support from them. – psusi Apr 25 '13 at 14:31

Open up terminal and use this command.
replace INSERT_YOUR_KEY_HERE with serial number provided to you by vmware

sudo /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-vmx --new-sn INSERT_YOUR_KEY_HERE
