An error occurred while attempting to create the directory “C:programdataMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuProgramsVMware”

When attempting to install Pro Workstation version 15.5 or 16.0, I get an error on a week old Win10/64 Pro system:  An error occurred while attempting to create the directory “C:programdataMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuProgramsVMware”

 

Ran the installer using “run as administrator” but got he same result.

 

The permissions for my login and Administrators allow full control of that directory.  I even created the directory and still get the same error.

 

What’s happening?

 

Thank you!
