Can roll you back VMware Tools to the previous version?

We have questions about one of our desktop computers to view which happened just after an update of the VMware tools. We want to restore the previous version to see if it helps but I don't know if and how you would do that. I guess if I could get the installation of the earlier version files I can uninstall the current version and install the previous version, but I don't know how to find what was the earlier version or how to get it. Any ideas?

All versions of the tools come from the ESX host.  So, to get an older version of tools, you will need to maybe download and install separately

  • How can I go back to the previous version of Adobe Reader?

    How can I go back to the previous version of Adobe Reader? The DC version was not as well thought he could have. How I use Adobe Reader seems to me having to press 3 or 4 buttons for every 1 that I had to press on in the previous version. This 'New and improved' is 'New', but not necessarily "improved version". So please, how to get back the previous version?


    You need to uninstall the version installed on your system and then you can download the previous version of the player.

    If you are on windows, you can download the cleanup tool to uninstall the player.

    Download Adobe Reader and Acrobat cleaning tool - Adobe Labs

    Once removed, follow this link to download a previous version of the player.

  • 7 - fusion '3D Acceleration requires an update of the VMware tools in the Virtual Machine'


    I installed the free Fusion 7 trial this week on my iMac and subsequently installed Windows 8.

    The resolution of the screen under Windows is very low compared to the Mac OS.

    In addition, I have the warning message in the Windows display settings:

    '3D acceleration requires an update of the VMware tools in the Virtual Machine'

    I also note that the display driver in Windows is the display driver database with Microsoft.

    A few weeks ago I installed version 6 of Fusion and it worked very well.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you


    Take a look at the installation and the use of the VMware tools and more spicifically to manually install or upgrade VMware Tools in a Windows Virtual Machine.

    If by chance, VMware Fusion is not properly mounting image VMware Tools windows.iso file then you have to do it manually.  It is located in "/ Applications/VMware" and will have to be copied, not moved, in a location that is accessible out of the bundle of VMware as the office.  If you need to do this, you can right click on the bundle of VMware see the content of the selection box and access its location to copy.  To assign the windows.iso on the CD/DVD image, take a look at: Connect and Set Up a CD/DVD Drive

  • How update the vmware tools on the guest or virtualcenter


    We run a store where we support some linux boxes.  We had some problems with time drift and other things and on our vmware guy suggested put us the version of VMWare tools on the guest or virtual Center.  The only problem is that I can't find a procedure for this.

    To clarify, I'm not how to install VMWare tools on virtual machines.  We know how to do and we know to recompile after we patch the kernel.  But our guys VMWare suggests that in the end we're just recompile the same old version of VMWare tools to make it work with the new kernel.

    In fact, we suspect the version we have is very old, that we have not successfully updated because we were running on 2.5 and are now running on 4.0 Update 1 (wait for the 4.1 support nexus is added).

    Thank you


    Welcome to the forums!

    So I assume you mean updating the source VMware Tools, which is then used to update VMware tools in guests?

    The guy from VMware is true, recompile the tools is necessary after a kernel update has been done. It is not up-to-date version. However, you must do that to make them work again.

    The latest VMware tools comes with the latest product or updates/patches for this product. Information shows that the tools are not updated after you apply this hotfix or an update.

    They also can be downloaded here (for ESX 4.x) :

  • Can I go back to the previous version of Firefox, before the last update?

    Firefox is automatically promoted to the 34.0.5 do not know what I had before, but I want to go back to what version came before that. I hate what spent my field of research. The only reason why I didn't completely Chrome switchd was the facility to change to a different search option. I could just click the dropdown in the search box and click the seardh option I wanted. Now, a new window opens where I have to click another menu dropdown to access my search options. It sucks! I want to go back to the previous version but don't know if it's possible. Any help would be great!

    You can return to the range of older search like this bar.

    Open Subject: config (typed in the address bar)
    Do a right click and toggle this false preference

    Then restart Firefox.

    Hello Bretus,

    Please contact the Mozilla Support and I am sorry that this update is not compatible with the extensions you use.

    Kaspersky support forums mention that these extensions will be updated soon, so that they are compatible with FF25. In the meantime, we do not recommend that downgrade you your version of Firefox, but you can find instructions and download locations for previous versions here:

    Install an older version of Firefox

    Please let us know if this solves your problem.

    Cheers, Patrick

  • I need to download firefox 9.0 as a toolbar I use is not compatible with 10.0. Where can I download the previous version? Thank you

    I went to check my version information by selecting everything under the Help menu. Firefox started downloading the update and prompted me when he finished. I approved it, not realizing it would update to 10.0. A toolbar I use is not compatible with the new version, so I need to download the previous version. Can someone tell me how to find 9.0. Thank you

    To secure your computer and your files, you should not go back to Firefox 9. 10 Firefox includes security fixes. You may be able to make your toolbar works with the journalist of compatibility module as described in this article to reactivate the modules that have been disabled when upgrading from Firefox.

    If you really must go back to Firefox 9, you can find it here:

  • Hello. I installed the latest version of Firefox and I don't like. How can I go on back to the previous version (3.6.3 I think)? Thanks, Geoff

    I think the latest version is very slow when you access web pages. I want to return to the previous version to see if it's better. How can I go about changing back?

    To return to the previous secure version which is 3.6.17, follow these steps:

    1. Go to Download Firefox v3.6.17 and upload it to the office.
    2. Then go to add/remove programs, scroll down to "Mozilla Firefox" and delete it, choosing to keep your bookmarks, etc., the customizations (don't tick the box).
    3. Reboot and delete the folder called "Mozilla Firefox" at this location: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
    4. Finally, run the installation file downloaded previously on the desktop.

    Your bookmarks, etc., customizations are stored in a different location and will become available to you even once you complete the installation.

    After completing the installation, go to the Plugins check page and update if necessary.

    However, before go you that route, here are some tips to make it look like the previous version of FF4.

    • Right-click on an empty part of the toolbar tab and click "Tabs on top" to remove the check mark. Tabs later reappears under the search bar.
    • Repeat the same steps, but click on the top of the page, one called 'Menu bar '. This will restore the text at the top links.
    • To rearrange the layout, repeat the same steps and choose "Customize". A Panel opens and who remains on the screen, you can move elements like toolbars, buttons etc. around and place them anywhere you want. You can also drag anything there that you don't like Panel and add anything you want by dragging it out of there.

  • can I go back to the previous version of firefox noncrashy?

    Firefox worked fine. I stupidly updated on offer. now kicked twice. can I go back to the previous version?

    Hello Irit.

    You need to update Firefox 3.6.3, instead of 3.5. I hope that will solve your problem. Previous versions of Firefox are not supported and have known bugs and security problems. You need to update to the latest version of Firefox, for maximum stability, performance, security and ease of use. You can get it for free, as always, to Firefox 3.5 is still supported, you can continue to use it, if you wish. I do not recommend it, however.

    If the update does not solve your problems, you have a problem with an extension or plugin that is an obstacle to the normal behavior of your Firefox. Have you tried to disable all add-ons (just to see) to see if Firefox goes back to normal?

  • You started VMware fusion with an outdated version of the application

    I bought a new disc fusion 3.0 version and it loaded on my new macbook pro and also to load Windows XP.  Everything worked fine until I'm showing that an update was available.  After update, when I start the fusion, the message arrives, 'you started VMware fusion with an outdated version of the application. VMware fusion can not power on virtual machines using this copy (version 3.0.0) to power on this virtual machine and run VMware Fusion of the default location"Does anyone have any idea what it means or if there is a fix?

    If you have VMware a subfolder of the Application or in he moved to the outside/applications, you must give the app and run it from the Applications.  If this is not the case, try to search with Spotlight for several copies of Fusion on your system to see if you have copies of somewhere, maybe an old backup.
