    VMWare Tools not installing on CentOS 7 Minimal VM, using Workstation Player 15

    eoharakx Lurker

      Hi,

       

      I have a CentOS 7 vm running in Workstation Player 15. I am trying to install VMWare Tools, as I believe I need this to set up Shared Folders. There does not appear to be a simple installation process. I try to install VMWare Tools from the application, but see the option unavailable like in vmwaretools1.png attached

       

      open-vm-tools is installed on my machine.

       

      I attempted the following steps:

       

      mkdir /mnt/cdrom

       

      mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

       

      But when I check the contents of /mnt/cdrom/, the expected VMWare Tools tar.gz file is not there, see vmwaretools2.png attached

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
