I have just installed VMware workstation 12 Pro  version 12.1.1 build-3770994 on a Windows 7 Professional host.
I have installed a new virtual machine Windows Xp Professional SP3 and it is painfully slow. I suspect that I need to re-install VMware tools on the Virtual machine.
I have tried to re-install VMware tools on the virtual machine but when I select the VM drop down menu from the virtual machine, the "Re-Install VMware tools .." option is greyed out. How can I install VMware tools ?
