Tools Manual install Windows 7 x64

Seeking way to manually install two drivers.  I saw another post referring to Microsoft support, but support has now ended for Windows 7, and that link is no good.  Thank you for your help!🤘

Hi,

Are you on Windows 7 SP1 or greater?

The following KB article has an explanation if you are not on that version yet.

https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/75163

You should be able to use the 11.0.6 iso if you are not on Windows 7 SP1 yet.
Here's a direct link:

https://packages.vmware.com/tools/releases/11.0.6/windows/VMware-tools-windows-11.0.6-15940789.iso

Note that the direct link above is for the 32 bit version of Windows, if you need the 64 bit version then you will have more work (unpacking the iso etc..)

But the better solution is to make sure that your Windows 7 has the latest updates & security patches (even while it is now no longer supported, you should still be able to get it to the latest released updates)

Hello, and thank you very much for responding. I am on Windows 7 I believe SP3.

I did a clean installation, because I had Windows 7 on an ASUS computer, probably SP3 as well. I did a standalone migration, and it booted up fine the first time, but then when I rebooted it it would just sit at a blinking cursor.

So that's a completely separate post, but that option looks like a lost cause. It's just that I had flash and other legacy stuff on the ASUS computer, and flash of course is not available anymore at least to my knowledge.

Thanks again! I really appreciate the help.
