Hide VMware tools tray icon
In some situations I want to hide the tray icon from VMware Tools.
The way I use to remove / hide the icon is to set the registry entry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc.\VMware Tools\ShowTray and set this to 0 (REG_DWORD).
You can set this in a SCCM/MDT task sequence by using the command:
reg.exe ADD “HKLM\Software\VMware, Inc.\VMware Tools” /v ShowTray /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
