Generally, you install the drivers of your virtual machines by simply installing the VMare Tools.
Nevertheless, if you need the drivers to import them into various Live CDs, for example, you will need the configuration files (in INF format) of these drivers.
To begin, create an "Extract" folder in the virtual machine.
Then, insert the VMware Tools Virtual CD by clicking : VM -> Reinstall VMware Tools (or Install VMware Tools).
In our case, the virtual CD drive has the "D" letter.
Export the VMware Tools drivers using the command provided by VMware :
setup.exe /A /P C:\Extract
Then, click on : Yes.
As you can see, this wizard tells you that it will create a server image of VMware Tools at the specified network location.
Click "Change" to choose a location.
Select the "Extract" folder created previously.
Click Install to begin extracting drivers installed with VMware Tools instead of installing them directly into the virtual machine.
Wait while copying files.
The copy of the files is complete.
In the "Extract" folder, you will find a "VMware" folder and an msi file.
If you go to the "VMware\VMware Tools\VMware\Drivers" folder, you will find the series of drivers installed by VMware Tools :
Nevertheless, as you can see, some drivers will be missing from this list of drivers.
In each of these folders, you will find :
Note that some network drivers are not provided directly by VMware Tools.
In this case, download them from the manufacturer's website.
In this case, on the Intel website.
PS : the list of network adapters virtualized by VMware Workstation is available on the VMware site.
