Using VMware Player to run Linux crashes with Ubuntu 16.04 as Host

I'm using VMware Player and have Ubuntu 16.04 as Host. When I launch VMware 12.5.2 it crashes.

Launching vmplayer from the command line I get this error: E105: PANIC: VERIFY bora\vmcore\vmx\main\timeTracker_user.c:238 bugNr=148722

[SOLVED] VMware CPU speed problem fix the issue in your /etc/vmware/config file, you have to add:

host.cpukHz = "2500000" 
host.noTSC = "TRUE"
ptsc.noTSC = "TRUE" 

where "X" is your CPU speed. I have a 2.5 GHz P4, so mine is 2500000.

cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep 'model name'
model name	: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad  CPU   Q9300  @ 2.50GHz
