If you are using a Microsoft OS - check in add/remove programs. You should also notice a little blue icon in your system tray.

Another simple method is to when you check the status of the VM from the VI client - it will display a status of VMware tools OK (and will display the dns name and IP of the VM).

I haven't installed VMware tools in a linux guest..... however you should be able to check by seeing the status of the VM from within the VI client.... where it lists the VMware tools status (not installed, OK etc).

Hi - as indicated above - from within the VI client you can determine whether the linux VM has the tools installed.

Here is a guide on how to install the tools on a Linux guest...
