Install VMware.x86_64.bundle on ubuntu 11.04-i386

Hi,my question is the same as subject.

Can I Install VMware.x86_64.bundle on ubuntu 11.04-i386.If not , What do you suggest except download 32 bit file?

hasan@hasan-HP:~$ sudo sh VMware-Workstation-Full-7.1.0-261024.x86_64.bundle

[sudo] password for hasan:

This is a x64 bundle and does not match that of the current

architecture. Please download the x86 bundle.

    I am sorry that you purchased vmware for the wrong architecture, but to my knowledge there is no way to get a 64-bit executable to launch on a 32-bit system. Your best option other than getting the 32-bit version of vmware would be to install it in a 64-bit ubuntu installation.

    thank you very much! :D

    Yes ubuntu can run on a computer with those specs. The limited hard drive space may become restricting in time, but that will only effect you quickly if you have a lot of music or video files.
