The new VMWare tools from a good poster zzmadd is attached to the bottom of this post:

Once the VM boots:

Setup starts immediately on OS load, first is to select your language and click continue like so:


Next is selecting your keyboard, select your keyboard and click Continue.

Next it will ask you if you want to transfer information to your mac, just select No like so:


Next it will ask you if you want to sign in to iCloud, select No:


Next it will ask you to Agree to the Terms of Service:


Next is to setup you account, enter your information and click Continue:


Next it will ask you if you want to use Express Setup, click on Customize Settings:


Next it will ask you if you want to enable Location Services, click Continue like so:


Next it will ask you to setup your your Time Zone, click on the map where you are and click Continue:


Finally it will ask if you want to participate in Apple Analytics, uncheck them and click Continue:


Once the OS loads to the desktop you want to go to Finder from the menu and click on Finder Preferences. Once Preferences loads check the Show Hard Drives box and you'll see your hard drives appear on the right of the screen.

You need to enable root to run the vmware utility, here's how:
Code: Select all

Then you need to add the following to your VMs VMX file at the bottom:
Code: Select all
 svga.minVRAMSize = 8388608 

Now you need to change the resolution and here's how:

Code: Select all
Open Terminal, then change directory by entering cd "/Library/Application Support/VMware Tools/", include the ""s because the directory names have spaces in them.

Now you need to enter SU and then enter the password you set for root.
Once you do that you enter:  ./vmware-resolutionSet 1920 1080.

The 1920 is the height and the 1080 is the width.  Set it to what you need.

You will not want to go full screen, in my testing full screen resets the resolution back to default.

Now shutdown and restart the VM to test your new resolution.
