I have Windows 7 and I installed VMware 8.0.3 then I installed Virtual Ubuntu 12.04 through VMware, but when I open it I always get this message:
VMware is currently being installed on your system. Depending on the version of Ubuntu you may log in below and use the system during installation. otherwise, please wait for the graphical environment to launch
I have been getting this message for about 3 days. What is the solution please?
Thanks in advance
I thing it must be a problem due to installation of VMware tool for graphical interface. So its better to connect the machine to the required server where you can get the VMware tool update. Once that will install you will successfully able to create the machine.
Else you need a bundle of required packages along with iso image if working in a standalone system.

Or you can sign in and start with
startx command. I was facing similar issue so I used
startx. What are the drawbacks of it?

Check this post Webup8
install the required dependencies and run the downloaded VMware .bundle file:
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
chmod +x VMware-Player-4.0.3-703057.i386.bundle sudo ./VMware-Player-4.0.3-703057.i386.bundle
chmod +x VMware-Player-4.0.3-703057.x86_64.bundle sudo ./VMware-Player-4.0.3-703057.x86_64.bundle
sudo apt-get install patch cd wget http://webupd8.googlecode.com/files/vmware802fixlinux320.tar.gz tar -xvf vmware802fixlinux320.tar.gz sudo ~/vmware802fixlinux320/patch-modules_3.2.0.sh

You should use newer version of VMWARE which is now available.
