Real newbie here, so please be gentle.
Originally installed VMWare Workstation Player 15.0.4 running on Win10 a few weeks back, and then created Win7 VM guest, and installed VMWare Tools 10.3.5 in the Win7 VM. All was fine.
Today I accepted the offer to upgrade VMWare to 15.1.0, and that went fine.
But now when I play the Win7 VM the system tray icon for VMTools has a yellow exclamation mark on it. When I hover the mouse over it the message "VMWare Tools can be updated" is the flyout. But I thought the latest version of VMWare Tools was 10.3.5. I certainly wasn't offered an option to upgrade VMWare Tools to a newer version, assuming there might be a newer version that matches 15.1.0 of VMWare itself. I have no idea what the story it.
I have tried uninstalling VMWare Tools, re-starting Win7 VM, and then reinstalling the same 10.3.5 version. And not surprisingly the yellow exclamation mark is still there.
I have to admit, I have a great deal of difficulty navigating through the VMWare web site. I do not find it user-friendly. Quite the opposite, to be honest, but maybe I'm just a beginner. I cannot figure out how to find anything, or search for something, or how to even download the latest version of VMWare tools. Even trying to search this forum was non-intuitive, and I didn't find any "hits" that might have been helpful. To be honest I can't even remember how I got the 10.3.5 download file in the first place but I certainly can't find it now, a few weeks later.
Can somebody please help me. Is this yellow exclamation mark normal or an indication of something I must do? And if I must do something, what is that? And please provide me with URL links to whatever page I need to go to to get started, or whatever I need to download.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Note that my Win7 VM is working perfectly, so that's not something I'm asking for assistance with. I only want to address the "VMWare Tools can be updated" message and yellow exclamation mark.
Thanks in advance.
