Error Code 0x0000005D – Please hold down the power button

I was very recently trying to re-image a Windows 2003 server with Windows 2008. Unfortunately, I was getting an Error code Error Code 0x0000005D – Please hold down the power button. I tried changing the SCSI controller, VM Hardware update, etc but nothing worked. However, I was bit lucky to get a solution. I changed guest operating system profile as “Microsoft Windows Server 2008” in General Options under “Options” available at the Virtual Machines Properties”.

VM Tools installation Error “Setup cannot continue. The Microsoft Runtime DLL installer failed to complete installation”

Recently, I was having issues in upgrading the VM Tools on a Windows 2003 server.Installation was not getting completed successfully. Hence, I tried uninstalling and re-installing the VM Tools. Unfortunately, I was unable to install the VM Tools and the error was “Setup cannot continue. The Microsoft Runtime DLL installer failed to complete installation”.

Luckily, I got an timely idea, I clicked on the setup, and when the error pop-up (before clicking “OK”) I opened %temp% directory and executed vcredist_x64.exe and VMware Tools.msi file manually, this worked perfectly.
