vmware workstation 12 unable to load

Using VMWare Workstation on ArchLinux, it suddenly refused to launch.
when inspecting the logs, which BTW are in /tmp/vmware-<id>, I see:

npm run build base-href

Using NPM to specify base-href When building an Angular application, people usually use "ng" and pass arguments to that invocation. Typically, when wanting to hard code "base-href" in "index.html", one will issue: ng build --base-href='' I used to build my angular apps through Bamboo or Jenkins and they have a "npm" plugin. I got the habit to build the application with "npm run build" before deploying it. But the development team once asked me to set the "--base-href=''" parameter. npm run build --base-href=' did not set the base href in indext.html After looking for a while, I found where it says: You need to use −− to pass arguments to npm scripts. This did the job! The command to issue is then: npm run build -- --base-href='
