How is a user supposed to find the latest Version of VMWare tools on the (My)Vmware website?

Hello,

I am really curios how a user is supposed to find the latest version of the VMWare tools when entering the http://my.vmware.com/ website. Actually, I only find it externally when I google it. But what is the workflow, or flow of clicks a user is expected to follow when he wants to find it directly on the website? I cannot find it in the "VMWare Workstation ->Drivers and tools section", nor anywhere else on the website.


To be honest, I have never ever seen a product website which is so confusing to browse and to get information from than the VMware website, and I feel really sorry to say that.

Can anybody please give me a hint how a user can easily, reproducably always find the latest version of VMWare tools on the vmware webiste? Which steps are required? I simply cannot figure out myself.

Google of course directs me to https://my.vmware.com/group/vmware/details?productId=742&downloadGroup=VMTOOLS1035 - I am looking for a way to find it without google, simply using what VMWare provides...

Hi,

There's a link that always goes to the latest available tools:

http://www.vmware.com/go/tools

Having said that, for VMware Workstation and VMware Fusion normally the easiest/best thing to do is to use the VMware Tools that is bundled with the VMware Workstation / Fusion release.
