    Macbook Pro 17 2.8ghz and VM fusion 2.0
    Hi I recently installed VMfusion 2.0 on my macbook pro 17. Every time I boot into Windows it prompts me that it found a new hardware. I looked under device manager and noticed that two hardware does not have the drivers installed correctly. 1) Base System Device and 2) Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

    I try installing the drivers that came with my restore CD but that did not help. Please let me know what I can do to fix this. Thank you!

    How do I check to see if I installed vmfusion for a guest OS? I think I installed it as an admin. How do I uninstall vmfusion? Can I just drag that application to the trash and it will remove from my MacBook pro completly?

    I try running a drivers update for the video card and pointing it to the cd that came with my mac book but that did not work. Any other suggestions will be greatly appreciated, thanks

    What is vmware tools? I recall seeing that pop up requesting me to install but I skipped it because I did not know what it was for.

    VMWare Tools is a set of drivers and utilities that ease the process of running a virtual machine. It does things like making it easy to transfer files between the Mac desktop and the virtual desktop, as well as helping with compatibility issues related to networking and video. You can install the tools by opening your virtual machine and clicking the Virtual Machine menu, then click Install VMWare Tools.
