VMWare Tools 3.5

somehow I have a recently P to V'd 2003 server with vmware tools 3.5 installed on it.  I can't update the tools without first uninstalling this old version.  The problem is add/remove programs is asking for the location of the MSI, which I don't have.

I've had a fruitless search for this old version of vmware tools.  Could someone provide a link?  Thank you!

Your VMware Tools are from the ESX/ESXi 3.5 Build U3.

I've had a quick search around the VMware downloads, and cannot find any versions earlier than U5.
