Vmware Tools Setup Cannot Continue.the Microsoft Runtime Dll Installer Failedl


I am building a couple of VM images using Packer (by HashiCorp) which calls an unattended file for the Windows Server (2012 R2 and 2016) configuration. That all works fine. Once the VM has been built the final call is made (by Packer) to a bat file which gets the VMware tools ISO and executes the setup64.exe with the silent switches. However, that install fails. The problem seems to be with installing the visual C++ runtime libraries. I get the standard 'Setup cannot continue. The Microsoft Runtime DLL insaller failed to complete installation' message in the installer log preceded by:Found "C:\VMwareTemp\GUIDSetup\vcredist_x86.exe"Cannot get short temp path for VC redist installerThe server auto logs on as local admin and UAC has also been disabled as part of the unattended script (for the purposes of troubleshooting). I have tried to manually install both the 32-bit and 64-bit 2008 SP1 C++ runtime installers as part of the unattended file (which install OK) before the script to install the tools is called but to no avail.Interestingly, if I can the same setup64.exe command after the VM has shutdown and been sysprepped, the command runs in OK and the tools get installed. So, is the error above in relation to permissions, possibly? I would be interested to hear anyone's thought, epsecially if you have come across the issue before!I will post in the VMware forums too as this may be nothing to do with the Server's OS at all.Cheers all,Dave.
