See heres the thing when using VM-Ware, VM-Ware doesnt use drivers for your physical hardware, because it emulates the hardware that is seen in the hardware information of your system preferences.

So installing even drivers for the "emulated" hardware will not work, as VM-Ware uses its own drivers for the hardware, which are included with the VM-Ware Tools, if that doesnt seem to work, you may want to contact VM-Ware support, as they may have a better solutiuon.

Multimedia Audio Controller driver is missing

this sounds like a problem with VM-ware, not woth your mac book, check your settings for the virtual system and make sure you have the sound enabled, as well as having the vm-tools install in the virtual machine.

"The RPC server is unavailable"

I?m assuming this is happening on a Windows machine. This is one of the really vague error messages that Microsoft give for an incredibly large number of problems. I typically see this on servers but have seen it occur on workstations. If you?re running XP, 2000 (server or Pro), or 2003: - Check and make sure your Remote Procedure Call Service is running. - There is an older vulnerability that tries to use a flaw in the RPC services. It is fixed if you copy of Windows is up to date so make sure it is. - Review your application log for any clues. If you need more assistance let us know your operating system, if it is fully patched and what is showing in your log file around the time you receive the error message.
