VMWare player IP addressComputing · Windows vmnetcfg · vmware player
This was something that really annoyed me when trying to configure VMWare Player 3, there seemed to be no easy way of changing the IP address range or the DHCP addresses when using Windows as the host OS.
Actually there is but in a stroke of genius by VMWare it isn’t installed properly. The program that you require is called vmnetcfg.exe and is included in the installer but isn’t installed. Its really difficult to find anything about it on VMWare’s site so to get to it:
- Run the installer with /e option. For example:
VMware-player-3.0.0-197124.exe /e vm
All contents will be extracted to “vm” folder.
- Open “network.cab” and copy vmnetcfg.exe to your installation folder,
typically “C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Player”.
Now you can use vmnetcfg.comments powered by Disqus
