When you install VMware Tools in a virtual machine in a vApp, you need to understand the process.
You can trigger VMware Tools installation on a powered on guest virtual machine in a vApp by selecting the virtual machine, right-click, and selecting Install VMware Tools. Popout the virtual machine console to continue with the installation. For information on installing in a variety of guest OSs, see Installing VMware Tools.
