Sync time without VMware Tools installed

Just a little note for those who are always looking for missing configuration parameters (like me).

Guests can sync time with the host automatically if you set the following parameter in the .vmx file of the guest:

tools.syncTime = "TRUE"

The same can be achieved by using the VMware Tools, however these might not be installed and installing them could be troublesome on systems not containing a development environment.
