      Hi. I have installed Windows Embedded 8 Industry Pro (Original version from MSDN) and it can't install VMware Tools.

       

      This is the error:

      (Sorry for Spanish language on screenshoot)

       

      I have installed sucessfully on Windows Embedded POSReady 2009, Windows Embedded POSReasdy 7, Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro (and Enterprise), Windows 10 IoT Enterprise.

       

      Regards.

          The problem occurs because Visual C++ 2015-2019 can't be installed. Visual C++ 2013 works great, but VMware Tools need Visual C++ 2015.

           

          The installation of Visual C++ 2015-2019 fails for KB2999226 can't be installed (Windows8-RT-KB2999226-x64.msu).

           

          If I try to install the update manually, it fails. Says that "This update is not applicable to your computer". I not know why.

           

          Regards.
