[svcpack] VMware Tools AddOn


Recommended Posts


Most of us do a lot of VM installs and it is always a pain in the but to install the VMWare tools after installation.

Now all you need to do is use this addon and the tools will be integrated at the t-13 stage.

You can also have this on your final ISO, the install will simply quit and not install on your real machine.

VMware Tools for v7.8.3.4558

Has this been used with Windows 2000? I get a windows installer error. (I am doing in a virtual machine, of course).
What error? I had a similar issue with another VMT installer a while back and traced it back to my removal of the Help subsystem. VMT (or WI?) needs certain files associated with that subsystem in order to install.

When I used this addon with Windows 2000, I ran into what I assume was the same error as 'n0b4r9n1lisfyeqr'. Following Kelsenellenelvian's suggestion that it was related to the version of Windows Installer, I integrated the Windows Installer 3.1 update into my CD. Once that update was integrated, no errors occurred.

Thanks ricktendo for the great addon.

Not recommended, reason:

If you install v6 Tools in a v5 Virtual Machine the drag and drop capabilities from VM to PC don't work (CONFIRMED)

But I think if you install v5 Tools on a v6 VM all it will say is that your VMware tools is old and you should update (NOT TESTED)

Too slow, really?

Personally, I couldn't find much of a performance difference between VPC and VMW, however, somehow I like VPC more.

And yes, it does require a similar software to install the missing device drivers (sound, GFX, etc) as well as enable drag&drop from host to guest and mouse interaction.

I'm currently uploading the files for you, if you need them ;)


Here you are:

Wow, you're very quick! :D

I will test ASAP, preferrably tonight (just in the process of checking for updates on all my other AddOns, will create the ISo afterwards) and report back then.

A German pack would be nice, as I am using the German version of VPC, however, I do not mind mixed languages that much as long as it does work ;)

(which remains to be seen...)

That said, I'm wondering in what the addon is language-dependand anyway, seeing as it does not seem to change any GUI entries or such...


Thanks a bunch anyhow!

One day I'll havw to sit down and get into creating my own AddOns, I guess :D
