    Any advice on how to get the Parallels tools installed in Windows Server 2016 core install? I find D: drive on the system, with the installer for the tools. But running them doesn't seem to work.

    Have found one other person asking similar question in the forum, but not answers were provided.
    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Intallation always hangs after the "administrator" creation, the DOS windows opens the installer, it emains active and responsive BUT it does not proceed

    We are having the same problem. The referenced article is of no help since Windows 2016 server core is in principle "headless".

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Set up Windows 2016 Server Core
    2. Choose Menu -> Actions -> Reinstall Parallels Tools
    3. Parallels Tools "DVD" is mounted at drive D:
    4. cd d:
    5. ptagent.exe

    Nothing happens. No error messages, nothing...

    See the attached screenshot
