VMware Tools should exclude Windows Server 2008
« on: November 30, 2021, 08:29:41 AM »
Hello,

The VMWare tools should not be available for Windows 2008 Server OS because VMware removed support some time ago.

With regards

This addition was pushed in today's catalog update. The rules should be updated in-place if using the Patch My PC Publisher.
