how to get vsphere 5.5 vmxnet3 NIC drivers without installing vsphere 5.5??

Jump to solution

We are on vSphere 5.0 indefinitely.

I really need to get the vSphere 5.5 x64 vmxnet3 NIC drivers to put into a Windows boot image.

How can I do this without installing vSphere 5.5 anywhere??

I don't presently have the wherewithal to do a 5.5 installation of any kind...

Perhaps someone could PM me a zip file containing just the required files??

Thank you, Tom
