How do I uninstall VMware Fusion Tools?

I have downloaded and installed Fusion 1.0, build #51348. In checking Fusion forum, I see where Pat recommends that we uninstall Fusion Tools from the prior installation (which I'm thinking is still there, since I have not yet installed Tools from build 51348), and then install 51348 Tools. I do not see where there is an option of unstall in the Tools seclection.

What do I do now?

To uninstall VMware Tools in a Windows VM you should use the control panel->add/remove programs.

Please let me know if you are running a Linux VM and if so which Linux and I will be happy to help you with that.

Tools are a set of drivers inside your Guest operating system, so you'd uninstall from there.

You should be able to use the Tools Uninstall instructions from the WS6 manual for now:

Thanks for your help. For some reason it did not occur to me to delete Tools through XP Pro, but I did as suggested and the new set of tools have been installed. Too early for me to see what changes have been made through this new build.
