    BSOD during VMware workstation player installation consistently

    Hi,I get a consistent BSOD during the installation of VMware Workstation Player. I can replicate it very easily. I have gotten 4 BSOD due to this (installation of VMware Workstation Player) while trying to debug/find the cause myself.

    Attached is the latest/last BSOD DM log collector file. (I have all 4 BSOD DM Log collector files if needed)

    BSOD Error: Driver irql not less or equal. Same BSOD error consistently.
    The BSOD always occurs during/mid-installation. I believe (Might be wrong) at the point where the installer states "Installing Virtual Network Drivers".

    The installer was run from C drive (Desktop) with installation into C drive.

    Things I've Done/Tried:
    1) Windows Updates & Application Updates
    2) Fresh Install of VMware workstation always
    - Remove any VMware files from installation path manually
    - Does not register as installed in control panel, hence unable to uninstall normally. BSOD always occurs during installation
    3) End Task/Exit any non-essential background applications/task

    My System:
    Laptop: Sager NP9150
    Operating System: Windows 10 Pro x64
    Motherboard: Clevo P15xEMx
    Memory: DDR3 16GB
    Graphics Card: NVidia GTX680m & Integrated Intel HD 4000

    Thanks in advance for the assistance

    See if there is a newer driver available. The one you have is dated Wed Mar 23 11:46:14 2016.
