I have a ubuntu 9.04 vmware image but the harddrive size is too small. I want to resize the vm disk partition which requires using vmware-vdiskmanager.exe

The problem is that vmware-vdiskmanager.exe comes with vmware server. I have vmware player installed which doesn't have that and windows will not let me install vmware server if I already have vmware player installed.

Is there a stand alone download for vmware-vdiskmanager?

I'm using win XP as the host OS

You could use the free VMWare Converter to convert from your VMWare image to another bigger VMWare image.

Once the new image is created, use it with VMWare Player instead of the old one.

I think you will have to uninstall Player, install Server, change your disks, and then re-install Player.

I ended up going with this option – Charles Ma Nov 4 '09 at 2:53
