[ warning] [vmusr:vmtoolsd] Failed registration of app type 2 (Signals) from plugin unity.

Create a file called “tools.conf”

The file will either need to be located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\VMware\VMware Tools

or C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware Tools depending on which OS you are running

# tools.conf

[logging]
log = true

# Enable tools service logging to vmware.log
vmsvc.level = debug
vmsvc.handler = vmx

# Enable new “vmusr” service logging to vmware.log
vmusr.level = error
vmusr.handler = vmx

# Enable “Volume Shadow Copy” service logging to vmware.log
vmvss.level = debug
vmvss.handler = vmx
