Yes, looks fine until step 6. When try to install VMFEX_TOOLS_64_2.0.18.msi, no options are shown. On Server 2012 HypeV this works fine, but installer is not OK for 2012 R2.

Four months has passed since

Four months has passed since this question was asked, and there is still no VM-FEX Tools for Windows Server 2012 R2. A whole year has passed since R2 RTM was released, not mentioning beta R2 versions. In addition, I was unable to use this technology with ESXi 5.1. I wonder if Cisco decided to abandon this technology for good...

I have Windows Server 2012 R2

I have Windows Server 2012 R2 DC with SC VMM 2012 R2. The latest Cisco firmware and the latest Cisco drivers are installed. SC VMM / Hyper-V cannot use SRV-IO technology.
