    Hi Steve
    I faced the same problem and I solve it by update vmware workstation 12 to 12.5
    You can solve it in 2 way
    First way : If you already install vmware workstation 12 on Linux mint 18 then download 12.5 from VMware site it’s free. Then follow the procedure to update from 12 to 12.5 by read official documentation of vmware http://bit.ly/2eUFTPy
    Second way : Uninstall vmware workstation 12 then install 12.5
