Resolution

Workaround

  1. Open a terminal and su to root.

    su

  2. Change to the libpng12.so.0 directory.

    cd /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libpng12.so.0

  3. Rename the libpng12.so.0 file within that directory.

    mv libpng12.so.0 libpng12.so.0.old

  4. Create a new soft link for this file.

    ln -sf /usr/lib/libpng12.so.0 libpng12.so.0

  5. Now change the the libgcc_s.so.1 directory.

    cd /usr/lib/vmware/lib/libgcc_s.so.1

  6. Rename the libgcc_s.so.1 file within that directory.

    mv libgcc_s.so.1 libgcc_s.so.1.old

  7. Create a new soft link for this file.

    ln -sf /lib/libgcc_s.so.1

  8. Restart VMware and you should now be able to use the browse option.
