    I have installed VMPlayer in Ubantu 12.04. But when I tried to install/update the VMTOOLS, It keep asking admin password. I have tried with all passwords including root & win2003 admin. No luck.
    Please help me to get intall VMtools.

      Are you logged into the VM with admin rights? if so mount the VMtools ISO and instead of auto running it try to run them manually.
      I have never experienced an issue running VMware Tools on a VM before and can only assume this is an issue with either user rights or perhaps an issue with a corrupted package.

    Thank you very much. I am starting on linux and your post is excellent. No advanced comments, no advanced comments, no showing off from “savvy” people.

      Did you make the file executable?

      Either try a sudo chmod 755 VMware-Player-4.0.4-744019.x86_64.bundle or sudo chmod +x VMware-Player-4.0.4-744019.x86_64.bundle and try again.
