      Why are the vmware-tools wrapped into a msi-package ???


      I see this as a step into the wrong direction.

      In earlier versions we could inject the iso and easily install drivers only.

      Now we always have to install the full package even if we don't really want it and only need the drivers.


      Please change back to the old way  - or at least provide a standalone driver download that can be found easily.


      I already had to explain to users a couple of time how to manually extract the drivers from a Workstation 6.0.* setup-file.

      This is really an anoying procedure as this used to be so easy before ...
