I'm pretty sure that's the nice incompatibility in recent glibc's.
vmware still thinks nice returns -1 on error, and that's no longer true:
it returns the new nice value, which could be very well -1.
The error message is totally bogus - it's probably issued by higher
layers that assume nice cannot fail.

Your only solution is to disassemble and "binary patch" vmware itself
using a hexeditor.
That may not be legal :-)

Good luck,
