Vmware Worstation 16 Player - VMware Tools

Good Night everybody! 


I have an issue within the instalation of the Vmware Tools inside the Guest OS, which is an Windows 7 x64. 

I've tried several times to install and reinstall the Vmware tools, but, every time the Setup doesn't install the HGSF (Host Guest Shared Folders Driver), which i need Sooooo Much. 

The message says that, theese drivers needs to be installed manually. However, I cannot find theese drivers, nor install by Setup. 


What can i Do to fix this Issue? 


Thank you very much Guys!
