VMware Tools on Horizon Workspace

Hey guys. 

I just upgraded my vSphere to the latest version, being 5.1 1065491.

I would like to upgrade my VMware Tools on the Horizon Workspace vApp. I hate having mixed VMware tools versions. 

What is the upgrade procedure for the vmware tools?  Is there a special method for the virtual machines in this vApp or can I just use the install/upgrade vmware tools method?

I don't want to go about the wrong way of doing this.  Thanks for your help!

Just as a note the VM Version on these virtual machines is 7 (which is what came with the vApp i downloaded last week). The VMware Tools shows Running (Out of Date) not the Running (3rd party/Independent) like what you see on vcenter operations manager.

We don't usually recommend changing vmware tools on your own, as we don't test with all combinations of tools. We will internally upgrade them as part of the next release or patch.

Please let us know if the current tools is leading to a problem, then we will look into it.
