Maybe because that tool installer is incompatible?

Try an older one or the extracted drivers.

VMware tools on Win95 bombed ever since Workstation 6.5. Don't bother.
Virtual PC works better for this.
Program run condition: collect keys. Deadline: 2 days.

Yea if you have VPC 2004. VPC 2007 has no Windows 95 Drivers, Just 98 +

The instructions clearly say (with instructions how) to install the drivers manually.

I have an ISO of 95 that I downloaded with working drivers. I wonder if its just a 2004 VPC image. The mouse cursor can travel in and out and the internet on it works fine on my VPC 2007 with this image.

I use VMware for three years and have launched all Windows on it without any problem. Try to change version of virtual machine back to 5 or 4, this trick helped me to install NT4 (on VM ver.7 setup lagged).
I'm sorry for my English... I'm from Russia and studied it only at school.

If this thread does start into a flamewar, use the report post icon in the top-right of every post. Locking threads because the discussion has been completed is both useless and annoying for anyone who wants to add something.

Select to install the tools from the menu, when the autorun exe crashes just close it, go to my computer and open the D: drive, run instmsia and wait some second, then run VMware Tools (it's icon should have just changed) and install.
But I won't bother because scripts and shared folders and scripts (and maybe also removable devices) aren't supported, the SVGA drivers don't work even if installed manually, the mouse driver is bugged and it's very annoying cause it screws up mouse movement when you try to go away from the windows (and the mouse doesn't go out) and sometimes it just crashes everything (these are from my experience). You can find video and audio drivers on the net (I don't know if I can post links here but if I can and if you want them I will)
