    Can't install VMware Tools on Windows 2012 Server R2 guest

    garyfritz Hot Shot

      I've just installed Player 15 (fresh download from vmware.com) on a new Windows 10 x64 laptop.

      I created a 2012 R2 guest with an ISO freshly downloaded from Microsoft.  VMware tools did not install.  Don't think it auto-mounted the Tools CD.

      I tried Player > Manage > Install VMware tools but it's grayed out.

      I mounted windows.iso from my VMware install directory and ran setup64.exe.  It says it can't verify KB2919355 is installed.  Windows Update says there are no more updates for this ISO image.

       

      How can I install VMware Tools in this scenario!??
