VMware Tools Download For VMPlayer

Are you looking for the VMware Tools to download for VMplayer 3?

Recently I need a new virtual environment for coding, therefore I use the latest VMplayer 3 to setup the environment. After I completed installing the OS and as usual I will install the Vmware tools first before I proceed to install other applications. When I click on the “Install Vmware Tools…” menu option, I found that the application try connecting to the VM official website to download the tools. I wonder if the users install offline like me then how do the users can complete the installation.

I try to look for the installer in VMplayer folder but I only found a file called “upgrader.exe”. I give up trying after some time because it’s wasting my time, then I use my own solution to solve it by installing VMserver to another computer. After installed the VMserver and I power on 1 of the virtual machines and extract the Vmware tools from the VMserver 2. I put the installer to the virtual machine that runs on Vmplayer and I manage to install the tools successfully.

If you are looking for the tools you can click on the link below to download the installer for your convenient.

    Yes….I wonder why there is no such “plug-in” available from the site also.

    I disappointed because when I try to install online it keeps return error saying the connection fail, that’s why I created this offline tool and share it here to help those who facing the problem.
