Virtual Machine not launching Gazebo

I am using the beta version of ROS as well as Ubuntu 16.04. When attempting to launch gazebo I get the following error:

mroscoe@ubuntu:~$ gazebo
VMware: vmw_ioctl_command error Invalid argument.

I have checked online and cannot find a solution and was hoping someone here may have run into it and knows how to work around it.
