Lack of GUI options within VMware Tools

In the past, VMware Tools installed within a Windows guest offered several options via the GUI of the system tray icon.  Starting with Workstation version 9 and ESXi version 5.1, the old options are no longer present.

Some of the features available via the GUI in the past are still present using the VMwareToolboxCMD.exe application.  The “help” switch will display some available options.
