I just updated to VMware Player 6.0.3, and my install of Snow Leopard show that the tools are not up to date. I ran the installer from unlocker 1.3, and still get the same message. Is there a newer Darwin available?
You need to mount the darwin.iso (which is located in the VMware Player directory if you have installed the unlocker) via the CD/DVD option and "Use ISO image file" in Virtual Machine Settings, then select "Install VMware Tools" once mounted in OS X , if you have a previously installed VMware Tools I generally do an un-install and reboot before doing a fresh install of the VMware Tools.
I am not sure which version of the darwin.iso comes with the unlocker v1.3.0, but to ensure you have the latest go to the following download topic, link below, and you can download either 6.0.4 or even 7.0.0 from the latest version of Fusion, just released.
What is the fasting more stable software to use VMware or Virtualbox? Can I install OS X 10.9.5 on either one using AMD?
I have not had a great deal of experience of using VirtualBox, but as VMware Fusion was designed to run OS X on a Mac, and a lot of the base code is shared with Workstation, Player and ESXi, and once the unlocker is installed OS X can be installed via the wizard natively, and the latest VMware Tools from Fusion 7 appear to have improved graphics performance, it would seem the better solution.
Unfortunately as Apple only use Intel CPU's in Mac haredware, OS X contains no code to support AMD processors to run OS X natively, so a new, non native, kernel is required to provide support for AMD processors. Some work has been done to try and provide a set of CPUID masks to allow AMD processors to run native OS X but this is proving very tricky, and CPU specific.
