    I click on the install tools thing, and it says cancel install but doesn't do anything. What am I doing wrong? Do i need to but the cd in the computer?

    What Guest OS are you using? A Windows version?

    You may need to run the installer manually. Select the 'Install VMWare Tools' option from the VMWare menu, then browse to the CD drive in the virtual machine. The VMWare Tools CD should show up, you can then run the installer from there.

    I'm running xp. I clicked on the cd, and it doesn't show anything. Do I need something in my cd slot?
