If you are trying to install VMware Workstation Pro 14/Player 14, then you will have to check the system requirements.

Systems using Processors (CPUs) launched in 2011 or later are supported except:

Intel Atom processors based on the 2011 “Bonnell” micro-architecture (e.g. Atom Z670/Z650; Atom N570)
Systems using Intel Atom processors based on the 2012 “Saltwell” micro-architecture (e.g. Atom S1200, Atom D2700/D2500, Atom N2800/N2600.
Systems using AMD processors based on the “Llano” and “Bobcat” micro-architectures (e.g. code-named “Hondo”, “Ontario”, “Zacate”, “Llano”)
In addition the following are supported:

Systems using Intel processors based on the 2010 “Westmere” micro-architecture (e.g. Xeon 5600, Xeon 3600, Core i7-970, Core i7-980, Core i7-990)

Questions
1) are you trying to install VMware vCenter Server? then what version are you trying to install , they each have requirements
2) are you trying to install VMWARE Workstation ? then what version are you trying to install , they each have requirements
also for this question have you tried using Oracle VirtualBox instead. (I.e. https://www.virtualbox.org/)
