make guest tools last so pre-reqs are in place #358
So I moved up the vm tools to the top of the section where you had it. It is not sensing that it was a Vmware install and doesn't go to the command to install. Bellow is the output for the vm tools bat.
==> vmware-iso: Provisioning with shell script: /Users/nicholaskasprinski/Documents/metasploitable3-vmt/metasploitable3/packer/templates/../../scripts/installs/vm-guest-tools.bat
Now branch should address the hang during install, this was due to fusion supplying 10.3.x versions of vmware tools which required vcredist2017 and depends on a KB that is intentionally not applied to metasploitable3. See https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/55798
