    VMWARE uninstallation problem in redhat linux


    Hi recently i installed vmware workstation using .bundle package in redhat linux, it installed properly but when i tried to install guest os it asked license key.I couldn't find the crack so i thought of uninstalling it.I first stopped service by the following command
    /etc/init.d/vmware stop
    After that i continued to remove files in /usr/bin and other places.But it was not uninstalled completely.Then i donloaded and tried to install 30days trail version but is is not getting installed and it is showing vmware is up to date.

    So,please any one tell me how to remove it completely from my system.
    Thanks in advance.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Do NOT ask for help in cracking commercial software and applications in these forums! If you need a decent (free) virtual machine then try VirtualBox from Oracle/Sun.

    Thanks for the clarification. My guess is that the installer used the system package installer (yum or rpm) to install the package. Have you tried this?
    Code:
    yum remove package-name
    # or
    rpm -e package-name
    where package-name is the name of the vmware package.

    you might need to reinstall then uninstall if the uninstall.pl fails

    BTW, VMware Player & VMware Server are free. If you like Workstation, it's around $200
