How do I install VMware tools manually

Install VMware Tools

After the installation of the operating system has been completed, the VMWare Tools must be installed. Without the installation of VMWare Tools there is no release for operation. For the installation of VMware Tools on Linux systems, please look for the corresponding instructions on the Internet.
The installation of the tools on Windows systems works as follows:

  • Log into VMware as you normally would.
  • Start the VM.
  • Do one Right click on the VM.
  • Select the option Guest -> Install / Update VMware Tools out.

  • Run Setup.exe and follow the installation instructions.

You can now use your VM like any other PC / server.
Note: If you enable RDP / SSH, you can also connect to the VM without a vSphereClient. However, your firewall must allow this.
