I am having trouble with the install of VMware-ClientIntegrationPlugin-6.0.0.  I get the error message that says:  Error overwriting hosts file: boost::filesystem::copy_file:Access is denied: "C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts.new", "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts"

I have updated permissions for the folder.

any suggestions?

Have you tried - "Run As Administrator"

hosts file is a Protected System file.

and that folder is also a Protected OS folder.

I have tried that and I still get the same issue.  I have tried logging in as both local and network admins and then using the "run as administrator" option but with the same results.

have you tried removing the file host.new, or moving to a different location, as this is a file which i added, not part of the OS file system.

the program does put the host.new and host.bak into the folder.   but if i leave them, rename them or delete them has not made a difference.
