Downgrade Vmware Tools

Hello All,

Today one of my friend asked me a interesting question. “How to downgrade the vmware tools?”


That was something interesting coz i did many changes in hardware version by changing the .vmx configuration file but never changes the vmware tools version to older.

So i researched a lot and found a interesting link to download the vmware tools executables files for any version.

Link To Download : http://packages.vmware.com/tools/esx/index.html


As you can see you can download any version of vmware tools regarding to the OS version , Environment (32 Bit or 64 BIt).Like Given below in Screenshots.


Just download the desired vmware tools executable to your Virtual machine And install it after removing the current vmware tools from your virtual machine.. Hope you enjoy reading it.
