VMware Tools Installation Problem

I just transferred my pc (windows xp pro) to a mac using VMware Fusion 2. I can't get the VMware Tools to install. I looked for the virtual cd-rom drive to force the installation, but my virtual machine (i.e., my old pc running on my mac) does not show a cd-rom icon under the my computer folder. I checked the settings and a cd-rom is "connected." What am I missing? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Can you go to your device manager and tell it to scan for new hardware and see if it picks it up?

How to Install any Driver/Software which isn't Supported by Windows Vista/7


Hello!!

There are lots of old Soft-wares and Drivers available which are not compatible with Higher Version of Windwos.

So some Windows XP exclusive setups can be installed under Windows Vista/7 As Under.

1. Try to install the drivers in compatibility mode.
2. For that right click on setup.
3. Go to properties.
4. Go to compatibility Tab.
5. Set it to win xp sp2.
6. Hit ok
7. Run setup as administrator
8. Ignore any error and hit continue anyway during installation
9. Restart pc

If the above trick doesn't work, then use the device in VIRTUAL XP MACHINE
You can use XP MODE or VMWARE or any other Virtal Machine Application.

Hope it Helps..!!

My Reason 4.0 recently began freezing on start up. I am using Windows XP SP3 on a Dell Inspiron 531s. Reason has worked fine for about a year, and now suddenly I can't get it started. Any thoughts?


There is probably more things that it could be then there are that it couldn't. First I would try to uninstall and reinstall the software and go from there.
Thanks,
Lee

Try the quick restore option. I can't quite remember where that is in XP so google it but this gives you the option to return your computer to the last stable condition. That should work, a clean install is an absolute last resort!

Trying to install BE 12.5 on a Windows 2003 Virtual server (VMWare ESXi),autoplay will not launch and cannot install by running setup.exe either.


With VMWare ESX (and other products they offer) during install of the VMWare Tools, Autorun is disabled to prevent multiple guests from accessing a cd-rom all at the same time.

If you go to this article by microsoft, it describes how to check the registry settings for autorun and the values to reset them.

I have installed virtual pc in windows vista. in virtual pc i ave installed windows xp. in virtual pc my usb ports are not working


Virtual PC for Windows does not support USB devices (other than a mouse and keyboard ... which are not actually emulated via USB, but are simply "used" through the host) ... but just to confirm the "official" statement of this:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/824511/en-us

Unfortunately, Microsoft did NOT add USB support in Virtual PC 2007 (a widely anticipated addition that simply didn't happen).

VMWare Server DOES support USB devices (through the host) with some exceptions. From the documentation: "... Modems and certain streaming data devices, such as speakers and Web cams, do not work properly." You may want to read the details of using USB devices with a VMWare virtual machine starting on page 232 here: http://www.vmware.com/pdf/server_vm_manual.pdf

You can download Virtual Server for free here (You'll need to register and request a free key ... a painless process): http://www.vmware.com/download/server/
