Cloudera CapSpark QuickStart VM not starting on VMware Workstation Player 14

Hi, 

 

I am trying to open the the Cloudera CapSpark Student VM for VMware. I downloaded VMware Workstation Player 14. I also downloaded the zip file containing the VM and unzipped it. I have done this multiple times on different PC's and it has been working. However on one specific computer which happens to be the computer I carry around with me I get the following error:

 

 missing Codec or helper program, or other error. In some cases useful info found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so

 

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,  missing Codec or helper program, or other error. In some cases useful info found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so

 

Kernel panic -  not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

 

END OF ERROR MESSAGE

 

I took a log at the log file to see what went wrong and I see the following lines before the VM shuts down all processes:

 

2018-12-25T02:55:02.377-06:00| vmx| I125: GuestRpcSendTimedOut: message to toolbox-dnd timed out.
2018-12-25T02:57:02.601-06:00| vmx| I125: GuestRpcSendTimedOut: message to toolbox timed out.
2018-12-25T02:57:02.607-06:00| vmx| I125: Vix: [4988 guestCommands.c:1947]: Error VIX_E_TOOLS_NOT_RUNNING in VMAutomationTranslateGuestRpcError(): VMware Tools are not running in the guest

 

 

Can anyone please provide any guidance on how to resolve this issue? Thank you in advance
