Running fusion 11.5.6 and cannot install vmware tools in a windows xp sp3 VM

This post was originally published on this site

I have just resurrected a Windows XP VM from a different source and imported it into VMWare. That all ran smoothly, boots, runs, all systems go. But I then wanted to install the VMWare tools and got a message saying that was only possible in XP if SP3 is installed. So I updated to SP3 and now the option to install the Tools is greyed out.

 

Is there any way I can convince the VM to install them?

 

I would appreciate any help.

 

AH
