how to uninstall vmware tools?

Postby Red Squirrel » 26. Jan 2009, 00:43

I made the mistake of not uninstalling vmware tools within vmware. Well not really a mistake, vmware kept telling me I had to run vmware-config and I got fed up with that as well as the web UI instabilities, so I just switched to virtualbox.

Within virtualbox I get this error now.

It's my understanding that the network card wont work with vmware tools installed, so is there a way I can force uninstall it?

I disabled all the services and rebooted but there's still stuff loading I'm guessing, such as the drivers.

Isn't this a Q for the VMware forum?

Yeah probably could ask there too but was thinking others here might have run into my issue.

I ended up just clean installing the OS though. The OS was getting dirty from all the vm moves (vmware 1.0 -> 2.0 -> VBox)

Rebirth is good for windows. It just gets too creaky after a while :-)
