vmrun checkToolsState indicates tools are installed, buta vmrun getGuestIPAddress says they aren't

This is for vmware Workstation 17:

Sometimes (and the exact situation on when this occurs is not known), a vmrun checkToolsState indicates the tools are installed, but a vmrun getGuestIPAddress indicates they are not. The GUI is up and running.

Searching the internet, I found a few suggestions to say to use the getGuestIPAddress's wait option.

Is anyone familiar with this solution and if it works? I ask because I'm using this in an application so I'm not sure how long the `wait` can be, and if it's possible it'll wait forever. I can't have that if that's a possibility.

Thanks!
