VMware Player 6 vmnetcfg

I recently loaded VMware Player 6 on my laptop but I was not able to get an IP address with Bridged Networking selected. Being a user of previous VMware Player versions, I knew there was a quick fix. Unfortunately, it was not as easy as I thought. 

In the past,to add run vmnetcfg to VmWare Player I just had to extract it from the installer but VMware removed it. Fortunately, with a little help, you can get it.

VMware Player vmnetcfg

Recently I was using VMware Player 3 on my laptop but I was not able to get an IP address with Bridged Networking selected. Being a user of VMware products for many years, I knew there was a quick fix.

I navigated to the VMware Player directory to run vmnetcfg but it was not there. Unfortunately, the new version of VMware Player doesn’t include vmnetcfg in the installer anymore. Lucy for all of us, it is included in the installer.

To extract vmnetcfg.exe from the installer do the following:


1. Run the installer with /e option. For example:
VMware-player-3.0.0-197124.exe /e .\extract
Contents will be extracted to “extract” folder.
2. Open “network.cab” and copy vmnetcfg.exe to your installation folder,
typically “C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Player\”.

Now you can run vmnetcfg to exclude network adapters from binding.
