In my experience you need to allow vmtools.exe full permissions as it goes quite deep into the OS.  create a process set for VMWare tools and give it full rights.  Safe privilages will not be enough

I agree with Alex, I tried using safe priv as well & it worked but certain features were failing to access the registry files it needed to report on cpu, memory, & disk usage. A very important metric gathering piece of vmtools. Full priv is the way to go unless you have the time and environment to systemmaticaly test vmtools in a locked down state.
