VMWare Tools 8.6.5 For Windows

Scripts and guide by Soren Birk

This package will check if the client is virtual, and if not then result in an isFatalError.

I have only created a setup-script for this package, since i dont see a reason for uninstalling VMware-Tools.

If you want an uninstall-package it should be fairly easy to create since the uninstall-file is located in the InstallDir.

Tested With:

  • OPSI 4.0.2.4
  • Winst 4.11.3.3
  • Windows 7, 32 and 64-Bit

Instructions:

  • (On a virtual host) mount VMware-disk by selecting: Guest → Install/Upgrade VMware Tools
  • Go to my computer and right-click on the virtual DVD-drive → select “Open…”
  • Copy all the files to vmwaretoolswin\CLIENT_DATA

Tree:

  ├ setup3264.ins
  ├ setup.exe
  ├ setup64.exe
  ├ vmwaretoolslogo.png
  ├ manifest.txt
  └ Program Files
    └ <subfolders/files>
