I hope you will learn to put your questions in the context of the answers and advice you receive.

When you post something, make reference to the answers alread provided. This could mean saying that you did not understand some part of the answer---or it could mean telling us that you tried what was suggested and that you got a particular result.

As you were advised in another recent thread, do not respond to help, suggestions, etc. by simply repeating your original question---or by throwing out a new question without relating it to the existing conversation.

E and C drives are WINDOWS drives. If you're asking about Windows software, ask on a Windows forum. This is LINUXquestions. And how are we supposed to tell you whether you can or not, when you haven't said WHAT PROBLEMS YOU'RE HAVING installing it.

And, you STILL haven't answered about versions, etc., or bothered to address the original issue, that you asked about. Did you try the originally stated solution???

Linux does not have the concept of "drive letters".

Hi,

Yes you can install vmware tools in Linux guests. It's pretty well explained on this site.

Kind regards,

Eric

Good luck, Eric. The OP isn't keen on reading anything, or following instructions.

Hi TBOne (and other fellow LQ users),

I'm a strong believer in patience, and that's the only thing needed to 'teach' the hard-headed. I think that the OP just doesn't know well how to communicate, most likely because he's not that experienced in English. Where there's a will, there's a way! If he shows the will, then I'm sure we can show him 'the way', although I'm sure patience and steel nerves will be needed

Kind regards,

Eric

Really, I wish you luck, and I hope that's the case. However, based on the OP's other threads, and such gems as:
Quote:
Stop sending try and try, read and read, i did all that but some commands are not working.
lead one to believe differently. And, based on the OP's other threads, he's supposedly got a college degree, and Linux certifications. One would think that with those, would come the ability to answer a question, or TRY to look something up, even if the syntax was incorrect.

Complaining about having to try things? Isn't that the point?

LOL, haven't seen that one yet. I'm gonna have a look at his other threads to see what you mean. If it's just stubbornness then you are completely right TBOne.

Kind regards,

Eric

TB0ne, I only have one thing to say, very humbly, looking down at the ground, after picking myself back up from where I fell down ROTFLMAO!!

I stand corrected after reading the other threads you mentioned and I don't think I could demonstrate that much patience necessary to help out.

Kind regards,

Eric
