VMware tools

VMware Tools is a suite of utilities that enhances the performance of the virtual machine's guest operating system and improves the management of the virtual machine. Without VMware Tools installed in your guest operating system, guest performance lacks important functionality. Installing VMware Tools adresses or improves these issues:

  • Low video resolution
  • Inadequate color depth
  • Incorrect display of network speed
  • Restricted movement of the mouse
  • Inability to copy and paste and drag-and-drop files
  • Missing sound
  • Provides the ability to take quiesced snapshots of the guest OS
  • Synchronizes the time in the guest operating system with the time on the host
  • Provides support for guest-bound calls created with the VMware VIX API

Please ensure that up-to-date VMware tools are installed in all of your VMs. If unsure, please contact the vendor of your VM-installed software, if VMware tools are supported and/or customized VMware Tools versions need to be used. Installing a new version may result in a reboot of the VM.
