Base System Device, ESXi 4.0, ESXi 4.1, Mouse Driver, RunOnce, setup failed to install mouse driver automatically, VMCI Driver, VMware SVGA II, VMware Tools, vmware tools fail to install
So you P2V a machine and now you cannot install VMware Tools, the below may not be the be all to end all fixes, but it fixed a VMware Tools issue I had earlier today… the VMCI Driver wouldnt install, nor would the mouse and Video drivers…
While installing VMware Tools in a Windows virtual machine, you may experience these symptoms:
•The SVGA / video driver fails to install
•The mouse driver fails to install
•You see one of these error messages: ◦Setup failed to install the VMXNet driver automatically. This driver will have to be installed manually.
The actual fix is quite easy. To find out how to fix this issue, go here.
