VMWare Tools removal problem
Posted on 2012-09-20
I have around 200 windows 7 computers which had their source image prepared on a VM on ESXi 4. Now, the problem is that vmware tools was not removed before sysprep and image capture - end result is 200 machines with vmware tools that should have it on.
This has materialised to cause issues with the print spooler service (somehow)
So, how can i remove vmware tools from these physical machines remotely?
I have tried add/remove programs, but there is an error about not being able to determine what type of VM so it won't run.
msiexec /x also won't work
