This is normal behavior for VMware Tools.  If you get the message that the Tools have been installed just make sure the virtual cdrom is unmounted.  Sometimes this happens automatically but if not just use "sudo eject".   You may wish to reboot but in a Linux you don't need to.  The vmware-install.pl script has other quirks (can't find path to headers for example) but if you have installed build-essential or just the gcc compiler you will be OK.  To test just use sudo /bin/vmware-toolbox-cmd timesync enable.  I should return "enabled".

It is not an error.  It is only for your information.

For older Linux distributions running in a VM, VMware Tools includes a VMware SVGA driver for use by the operating system's X server, and the VMware Tools install script has the job of installing that driver into the guest OS and configuring the X server to use it.

Modern Linux distributions -- including CentOS 6 -- will include a xorg-x11-drv-vmware driver bundled into the OS.  (Debian derivatives call it xserver-xorg-video-vmware.)  Because the guest OS includes its own VMware SVGA X driver, VMware Tools does not need to install one, and does not need to configure the X server to use that driver.  The guest OS has already set that up.

For any modern Linux distribution as a guest, the message you are seeing is perfectly normal and can be ignored.

Hope this helps!

My guest can't recognize host's monitor,

My monitor's resolution is 1280X768.

If guest set resolution to 1280x768, the bottom of the desktop cut off.

So I set resolution of guest to 1280x720

Shut down the guest OS, then go into VM > Settings > Hardware > Display.  Try choosing Specify settings for monitors, and choosing one monitor at 1280x768.  See if that helps.

Cheers,
