I'm running macOS Catalina 10.15.7 in a VM which is running in VMWare Workstation 16.0 on Windows 10 Pro (build 2004)
VMware says that the installed version of VMware Tools is not up to date. However, in my opinion it is.
The hardware compatability is set to Workstation 16.x. Changing it to version 15.x does not help.


When I run the /Library/Application\ Support/VMware\ Tools/vmware-tools-cli -v command in Terminal (macOS) to check the installed version 

of VMWare Tools it produces the follwing result. See screenshot attachment.


Thereafter, If I run an update of the VMware Tools via the Update option in the VM menu option of Workstation 16 and restarts macOS, then Vmware Workstation keeps saying: 'Vmware Tools is not up to date'


Someone have a solution to this problem?

Sometimes vmware has problems reading the version correctly. If everything works as you need, don't be botherd by it.


Anoter solution would be to download the darwin.iso vmware tools see here: 


And install them manually...

The newest version: http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds/vmw-desktop/fusion/11.5.6/16696540/core/


You do not need the pre15 version as you run catalina...

Please report back and Like the post if it helps :-)

Good Luck
