install vmware workstation pro 12.5.2 on system with kernel 4.9.x

without a patch, vmware 12.x can not be install on kernel 4.9.x for now,

1- install vmwareworkstation pro, but it won't be successful

2- download a patch
$ git clone

3- prepare the script and apply the patch
$ cd Tools/vmware
$ cat | sed s:/usr/bin/pwd:/bin/pwd:g >
$ sudo cp *  /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/
$ cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source/
$ sudo sh

4- after apply the patch, it will automatically recompile the vmware kernel modules, and this time it will be finished without any errors.
