Display VMs with VMTools installed

Display VMs with VMTools installed

I am trying to display the VMs that have VMware Tools installed and running.
I used the option shown in the screenshot. So even though I selected the Vmware Tools Running Status so that another column will be shown about VMware tools, but the column does not get added.

I am not  sure what I am doing wrong.

Any help?

Thank you

You can also use RV Tools, to generate reports

I wonder if I install VMware tools while the VM is running, whether there will be any negative impact on the VM

The VM will need restarting if it's Windows, not it it's Linux, see my EE Articles

right click on the gray bar that contains
name, state, provisioned etc.
select vmware tools running status

Don't use the drop down just above the gray bar on the right.
