'Enter Unity' feature on Windows 7 Ultimate error.

Jump to solution

I am using VMware player 5.0.1 on Ubuntu 12.04. I want to use the 'Enter Unity' feature, but it gives me this error:

The virtual machine cannot enter Unity mode because:

- The guest operating system does not have VMware Tools installed.
- The guest operating system's resolution cannot be changed.

When I try installing VMware tools, it stops on the 'Update of VMware Tools for Windows 2000 or later pending...' stage and doesn't get past that. And I would also like to know how to fix the 'The guest operating system's resolution cannot be changed.' error.
