    I have windows 7 installed on my mac through Bootcamp. For some reason, every time I install VMware tools on the Virtual Machine it screws up the colour and resolution.

    However, Windows runs fine when booted into, as well as when VMware tools isn't installed while running Windows through VMware...

    I have tried reinstalling VMware on OSX as well as on windows and nothing seems to work. I have no idea what else I could try other than installing windows but obviously that's not something I want to have to do.

    Has anyone else had this problem, and if so, how did you fix it?

    Here's a screenshot of the issue:
