I kept getting this error when I was installing the VMWare Remote Console:
Failed to install the hcmon driver
and then the installer would exit.
To get around this, I launched an elevated command prompt and executed the installer through the shell.
cmd in your start menu and right click it.
Run as administrator. Accept the UAC prompt and change to the directory that has your VMRC installer.

This will execute the installer with elevated privileges so you can install the hcmon driver without error.
