Extract the original executable. One way to do this is:
VMware-player-7.0.0-2305329.exe /e [output path] (Seems to be silent operation, and can take around 30 seconds to complete).
Using the output folder, you can create a MST to enter custom PROPERTY settings:
AUTOSOFTWAREUPDATE = 0 Turn off AutoUpdate
DATACOLLECTION = 0 Turn off usage statistics
DESKTOP_SHORTCUT = 0 No desktop shortcut
EULAS_AGREED = 1 Supress license dialog
SERIALNUMBER = xxxxxxxxxxxx To enter purchased license key
COMPONENTDOWNLOAD = 0 Turn off component downloads
QUICKLAUNCH_SHORTCUT = 0 No quicklaunch shortcuts
ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT Delete this or set to 0 to have the app show in Program and Features.
