I'm evaluating VMware Player and I stumbled upon a problem.
I can't install VMware Tools in the guest machine (Windows 8.1). When I try i get:
Software update internal client error (CDS_HTTP_INTERNAL_ERROR). Contact VMware Support or your system administrator
I'm running VMware 12.5.7 on Opensuse Leap 42.3 - and to install I needed a modified files as described here:
VMware 14 is sadly not an option - I get identical error to the one described:
Any suggestions how can I get a successful install?
I have the same host machine, openSuse 42.3
For me, the soluction was:
Enter in Yast and stop the Firewall
Open the terminal and start the vmplayer like root
Open the Virtual Machine Guest
Download the vmtools,
Power off the vmware player and restart the firewall.
In my case, the problem stopped and I downloaded the vm tools
that didn't change a thing on my end.
But I've been able to install tools manually - by downloading the iso from here :
then mounting the iso in VM and installing from there. Atm I'm checking whether everything works as it should.
