Problem using shared folders in sandbox (HDP 2.6 vmware)

Problem using shared folders in sandbox (HDP 2.6 vmware)

Explorer

I am not able to use shared folders with the sandbox (HDP 2.6, vmware). I added shared folders and enabled it in the settings, but I can't see the folder in /media.

After some reading I thought it might be necessary to install the vmware tools, after downloading, mounting them as cdrom and invoking vmware-install.pl it ended with "WARNING: Couldn't open directory /lib/modules/4.12.4-1.el7.elrepo.x86_64:" after

/usr/bin/vmware-config-tools.pl was invoked.

What do I have to do to install the vmware tools? Will this help using shared folders or is there still another problem?
