  3. hi Rick,/e is enough to get an administrative installation,see page 43 of WS7 manual

    To install Workstation silently

    1 Open a command prompt and enter the following command to silently extract the

    administrative installation image from the VMware Workstation installer:

    setup.exe /s /e <install_temp_path>

    setup.exe is the name of the installer on the installation media. If you are using a

    downloaded installer, the filename is similar to

    VMwareWorkstation-<xxxx>.exe, where <xxxx> is a series of numbers

    representing the version and build numbers.

    <install_temp_path> is the full path to the folder where you want to store the

    administrative installation image.

    2 Enter the following command on one line to run a silent installation using msiexec

    and the administrative installation image you extracted in the previous step:

    msiexec -i "<install_temp_path>\VMware Workstation.msi"

    [iNSTALLDIR=<path_to_program_directory&gt] ADDLOCAL=ALL

    [REMOVE=<feature_name,feature_name>] /qn



    vmware tools is optional install by ditributed computer from an administrative installation image

    the .exe just like silent installer

  4. @ Darkray: stcp2v30 is a component belong to the feature P2V and P2V is already removed in MSI file, it doesnt matter to snapshot a guest,my fault include it on the list,sorry about that.

    i have another one ,

    Size:1.73 MB (1,818,421 bytes) MD5:484eb5ab151f4b7a617cd0dee9f14383

    some features is diabled ,some components is deleted,not expect it work flawlessly,i'll test it on a clean xpsp3 environment,just need some time to reinstall OS,

    thanks the trick to use "msiexec /a",its very handy to fetch files we need.

  6. bjfrog (or others)

    Has anyone had any luck creating a slimmed down tools installer? None of the methods I've used past versions are working with v8.1.3, build203739.

    Uncle Gadget

    thedexmonster already made one addon for us,it work already tested on running guest machine,not yet test integrating into xpcd.

    VMWARE changed the method for installing vmware tools not include into MSI from v7, several execute files instead of that, double click tools-windows-8.1.3.exe for installing windows vmware tools,"/s" for silent install,"/e" can extract to a folder then you can create a smaller installer about 26MB,because of digital signature checking ISO file cant be slimmed down,im not going to touch ISO unless find one way to make it work without signature.
