    Hello to everyone.

    I've just installed Windows XP 64 bit on VMware Workstation vers. 17.5.1. I would like to install the vmware tools,but I don't know how to do it. Infact,VMware does not install it automatically,I don't know why, and I can't do it manually,because the option is greyed out. I've added a shared folder chosen from the host OS (Ubuntu 23.10). I've shared the / and I've mapped this folder as a Windows network drive,but I don't see it within the Windows XP VM. Taking also in consideration that I can't use IE in Windows XP because it is very old,I don't know how to place the files I need within the VM,since I can't download anything and I can't copy and paste anything from Linux to the Windows XP guest OS.
