Free Backup Tool for VMware and Hyper-V

Restore full virtual machine or individual guest files from 19 common file systems directly from the backup file. Schedule VM backups with PowerShell scripts. Set desired time, lean back and let the script to notify you via email upon completion.

The error suggests the guest machine does not have an internet connection. Check and see if the guest machine can browse the internet.

Also make sure the host firewall is allowing the guest subnet range.

In the guest machine, look in Programs and Features and see if a version of VMware Tools is already installed, and if so, try uninstalling, restart, and try another install.

There is a VMware Knowledgebase article with registry fixes for a failed Tools install. Look through this. There is a section for Windows 7. Take extreme care editing the registry.

you must be logged into the operating system to install vmware tools
if you have problems in your vmware folder look for windows.iso  and attach that to the virtual machine's cdrom

Why did you put an image in a .docx file?  It is not needed and only makes things harder for others

John HurstBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
You cannot download VMware Tools separately because they are included in the VMware Setup.

VMware Player may need to use the Internet to get the updates it needs, but VMware Workstation (I use this) carries the Tools as part of the application package.

It has been like this for a long time as the Tools install needs to match the version (and subversion) of VMware being used.

The link posted is for Linux guests. I had already looked at it and there was not a Windows 2000 Tools package in it that I could see.

VMware Workstation V9 is faster than VMware Player also.

you will need 7zip or winrar or winzip to unpack the .tar file into the .exe
and you will want the tools-windows-9.2.3.exe.tar
