Permission denied message when installing vmtools

When installing vmtools on a linux machine inside the /tmp directory, got this error: ./vmware-install.pl: /usr/bin/perl: bad interpreter: Permission denied
Then looked at tmp for permissions: lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root     31 Mar  6 11:13 vmware-install.pl
It seems ok but if /etc/fstab has noexec option like: LABEL=/tmp    /tmp    ext3    nosuid,noexec,nodev    1    2
Changed with this one and remount again: LABEL=/tmp    /tmp    ext3    defaults    1    2
