I installed El Capitan on VMware Pro 12.0 running on x64 Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 using this torrented image. While trying to install VMware tools, I get an error saying Could not find component on update server.

Everything went smooth on Windows 10 host, so I suppose image is fine.

I would appreciate if someone could recommend a work-around like downloading required components and manually installing them.



As the error message says, you should have contacted VMWare Support, who would have likely pointed you at this knowledge base article, which details how to install the tools in a MacOS guest, and which also states that MacOS guests are only supported on VMware Fusion.
