VMware installation problems, vmmon and Virtual Machine error

Having trouble with VMware Workstation installation. Installed dependencies, then installed Workstation using bundle script. Ran the command

 vmware-modconfig --console --install-all 

When I run this command

 "modprobe -a vmw_vmci vmmon" 

I get this error:

 modprobe: WARNING: Module vmmon not found in directory /lib/modules/4.20.7-arch1-1-ARCH 

If I try using Workstation executable file, it asks for module compilation and installation when compiling it returns "Virtual Machine error" "Unable start services"

Log file:

Thanks for your answer, yes, I installed the linux-headers, then tried lts, I did all the things in the wiki page, Tried workstation pro aur version. Didn't work.
Then I installed just player. Player works OK.
