    Doesn’t it already install fine? I just install using the one that VMware provides. It works fine.

    Still getting displayed in the lower left hand corner of VMWare Server, ‘you do not have VMWare Tools Installed.’ Even after rebooting the pc. The script shows no errors after running.

    Worked great for me! Thanks. I did not have vmware-tools installed because I have vmware player. This compiled and installed everything automatically. Very useful!
