Windows 7: Issue with VMWare Tools on Win7 Build 7600

Issue with VMWare Tools on Win7 Build 7600

I have run most all the RC builds in a VMWare test environment. Up until now I have not had any issue installing and running VMWare Tools in the VM running Windows 7 RC. Now with the last two RTM 7600 builds after installing VMWare Tools and upon reboot the system just hangs before the login screen appears. Has anyone else experienced this?

VMWare Server ESX 3.5.0 / VMWare Tools for Windows build 158874

It must be some other startup item causing this. Use this tutorial to disable some startup items.

These are fresh installs of both 7600.16385 and 7600.16384. If I revert to a snapshot prior to installing the VM Tools the systems start fine.

If someone finds finds a way to make this work without disabling UAC please let me know.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
