Running VMware Player 6.0, installed Windows XP Service Pack 3. Trying to install VMWare tools and get the following error message: "CDS internal client error (3033). Contact VMWare Support or your system administrator."
Also see attached screenshot. When I look this up it says to check internet connection. I can navigate to google.com or other website from the VM just fine. I even went on our web filter and put an exception for the VM IP address to make sure it did not touch the packets. I am using bridged networking in this VM and it's running on my Windows 7 Pro 32 bit machine on which I am typing this.
