Installing VMWare tools, are you using ESXI?

Right click the VM and move to Guest and find Install/Upgrade Tools, now login to the CentOS server as root

Here are the commands:

mkdir /tmp/cdrom
mount /dev/cdrom /tmp/cdrom
cp VMWareToolsxxx.tar.gz /home/

cd /home
tar zxvf VMWareToolsxxx.tar.gz ./vmware/vmware-install.pl

Follow along the install with the typical I agree and continue scenarios and in about a minute your done.

Hope this helped.
