I have installed windows 10 as guest in vmware player 12 on Linux host (Archlinux x64).
When I run it, it asks to download and install the vmware tools 10.
Problem #1: if I choose to download and install the vmware tool automatically, after asking me for the su password, a window with a bouncing progress bar appears and after a few minutes tells me that there was a problem while downloading the update
So I decided to manually download the iso file from vmware web site (VMware-tools-windows-10.0.0-3000743.iso), mounted into guest and manually installed the tools. Everything works fine including 3D acceleration, mouse integration, bidirectional clipboard etc except for:
Problem #2: Everytime I start the vm it asks to download and install the vmware tools.
How can I fix the two issues above? or at least how can I get rid of the annoying message at #2?
