Use the Virtual Network Editor in VMware Player 7

On VMware Player you don’t have the Virtual Network Editor which is available in VMware Workstation.

To have it in VMware Player 7, you can take it from the VMware Workstation 11 installation package. It will not work if you use VMware Workstation 12.

Open a prompt command, go to the directory where you have the installation package and extract the content with

[cce]VMware-workstation-full-12.0.0-2985596.exe /extract .\vmware[/cce]

All files will be extracted into a vmware directory.
Inside here you will find a package called vmwareworkstation.msi.Extract it using 7-Zip. Enter the extracted directory and extract Core.cab.
Go inside the extract directory and you will find vmnetcfg.exe
Now copy this file into your VMware Player diretory, like

[cce]C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Player[/cce]

Now you can open it and edit your interfaces.
