Issues with VMware 8 wont run Kernel 3.8 wont let VMware 8 & 9 work



When I try to launch VMware workstation, I get the following error:
Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the kernel CANCEL / INSTALL

No errors, when I select INSTALL nothing happens just closes.
I install manually:
sudo apt-get install open-vm-tools open-vm-tools-dev open-vm-dkms open-vm-toolbox open-vm-tools-dev
But already installed to the latest versions.
I will start a bounty to fix this.
Ubuntu 13.04 64bit

pst007x@pst007x-Serval-Professional:~$ uname -a
Linux pst007x-Serval-Professional 3.9.0-030900-generic #201304291257 SMP Mon Apr 29 16:58:15 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I have uninstalled and reinstalled all components, but same problem.
I have tried a different Kernel, but end up with the same problem.

Tried this as suggested: here

#!/bin/bash
cd
cp -prn /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source-backup
mkdir fixed
cd fixed
find /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source -name "*.tar" -exec tar xf '{}' \;

## add missing header on kernels
sed -i '/#include "compat_wait.h"/a\#include "compat_sched.h"' vmnet-only/vnetUserListener.c
sed -i '/#include "compat_page.h"/a\#include "compat_sched.h"' vmci-only/include/pgtbl.h
## comment out an invalid definition
sed -i 's|\(extern void poll_initwait(compat_poll_wqueues \*);\)|//\1|' *-only/include/compat_wait.h

tar cf vmblock.tar vmblock-only
tar cf vmci.tar vmci-only
tar cf vmmon.tar vmmon-only
tar cf vmnet.tar vmnet-only
tar cf vmppuser.tar vmppuser-only
tar cf vsock.tar vsock-only

cp -p *.tar /usr/lib/vmware/modules/source

cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include/linux
ln -s ../generated/autoconf.h
ln -s ../generated/utsrelease.h
cd

vmware-modconfig --console --install-all

# clean up
cd
rm -rf fixed
cd /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include/linux
rm autoconf.h utsrelease.h
cd /usr/lib/vmware/modules/
rm -rf source-backup
cd

Didn't work, results of script in terminal:
