Does anyone receive the following message in a random maner.

I have a automatic process that runs every night, but sometimes (regularly) the application throws this error, what can it be?


Any clue to fin the problem I'll aprecciate.

I've seen this before. If you've just powered on the virtual machine and get this error, you might want to wait 10 seconds or so after WaitForToolsInGuest finished. Otherwise I recommend upgrading VMWare Tools on the virtual machine to the latest (definitely haven't been seeing this with ESX 4.1) and maybe ask this question on the VixCOM forum.
