Force VMware (Fusion) tools installation

Last time I P2Ved a Windows 7 machine, I ended not being able to install the VMware tools on it. The menu was just not enabled no matter what I did inside or outside the VM. The solution to have the VMware tools installed is to manually mount the Windows drivers disk image.

On your VM, attach the /Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/isoimages/windows.iso image file to the virtual CD and run the installer from here.

That’s all folks!
