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
