VMWARE Tools needs to be repaired with every guest reboot

Hello there, 

  I'm having the following issue: Everytime I reboot my guest operating system (Windows 10), I need to repair VMWare tools in order to enter Unity Mode or have other functionalities like copy/paste or moving files by dragging between host and guest.

  I have already tried reinstalling VMWare Workstation player, but still having the same issue. 

  Any help on this will be higly appreciated.  

  Best regards,

Bernardo

 

  Host operating system: Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit 
  Guest opereating system: Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit 

  Product: VMware® Workstation 16 Player
  Version: 16.0.0 build-16894299

Have you tried completely uninstalling VMware Tools, then rebooting, then reinstalling them?

Yes, I have done that several times. The result is always the same. As soon as I reboot the VM, the features are gone, and I need to reinstall/repair the VMWARE Tools.

In fact, I have also reinstalled/updated the whole VMware Workstation as well.
