Hello @estmnd1 and welcome to the community. Please read the #start-here topics when you have the time.
About your issue, maybe this topic could be helpful? https://discussion.fedoraproject.org/t/howto-how-to-resolve-issues-for-vmworkstation-and-vmplayer-any-kernel-any-version/73365
If you get this Error in VMware Workstation Pro 15.5:
Unrecoverable Error buffer to small
bash VMware-Workstation-Full-15.5.0-14665864.x86_64.bundle --eulas-agreed --custom
which should fix the “Buffer too small / unrecoverable error” issue
However, as it seems, that is STILL not enough to have a working installation of VMware WS. So (again as root ) you will probably have to do
chmod a+r /etc/vmware/config
