[SOLVED] Ubuntu 13.04 HOST, Win-whatever GUEST, VMWare TOOLS install fails

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – This is to assist anyone who's had this problem with VMWare-Player (I suppose it should address the same problem with other VMWare tools): HOST: Ubuntu 13.04 GUEST: Windows-7, Win-XP, or any Windows-2K and above Installation of VMWare Tools in the guest OS fails with an error (unable/try later/contact VMWare/Your Administrator). I found this on a Linux-Mint site that I can't find again, so I'm posting the procedure here. Download tools-windows-9.2.3.exe.tar from this location (as of this writing, this is the latest version): http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds...dows/packages/ 1. Extract (Hardware)
