I downloaded and unpacked tools-windows-9.6.1.exe.tar but an error is showing. I used WinRAR on executing the file. Yet this error keeps showing:
Error -4,while reading from C:UsersUserDownloadstools-windows-9.6.1.exetools-windows-9.6.1.exe
I re-downloaded the file and then try it again but the same error incurs. How can I fix this?
Tools-Windows-9.6.1 Error -4 on Unpacking
I’m not sure what happened back there but checking the supported file formats that WinRAR can unpack, the TAR extension or format is supported. The file you are trying to unpack is VMware Tools which is available in different versions for various operating systems. It seems that you are successful in unpacking the TAR file but not so lucky on installing it.
I’m just wondering if you really downloaded the correct version for your operating system since there are different versions available. I’m thinking you accidentally downloaded the wrong TAR file for your operating system that’s why it won’t start. To make sure you downloaded the correct version, download it again from below:
Run the extracted EXE file to install the corresponding “.sig” and “.iso” files to the VMware Player working directory. In case the installation failed, load the ISO image to a virtual drive and run the installation manually.
