Updating VMWare tools on Azure VMs

Hello all,

​

I migrated a few servers from on prem ESXi hosts to Azure a few months back and now the client is asking to have the VMWare tools updated.

I downloaded the installer for guest OS installer for Windows but it simply won’t run. It will ask if I want to run it and nothing happens (as admin).

I know this is a simple process on vSphere or ESXi hosts directly by running it from the console but is there a reason why I can’t run this directly from the VM OS?

Probably missing something obvious but I am not seeing what I am missing. Any help would be appreciated.
