    Deploying VMTools

      Hello All,


      I'm trying to silent deploy VMTools for VMWare but having some problems. Composed the package including all the files stiplulated on the VMware website.


      Loaded them all into the depot as a custom package and using the following install command :

      msiexec -i "??SOURCE??\VMware Tools.msi" ADDLOCAL=ALL /qn


      Simulate/Stage are fine however Commit appears to hang the but on closer investigation all its doing is waiting for the reboot to commit all the changes because the application is installed. Once i reboot the VMware session its fine.


      Now in theory you would think I could modifiy the job properties to initiate an auto-reboot once the job reaches that point but unfortunatley I've tried that it still does the same thing (job hangs).


      Anyone on here fiddled about with this and got some suggestions that might cure the problemo.
