[Solved] Mount Tools not allowed in the current state

The problem

You try to mount the VMware tools ISO but you get the following error.

Operation "Mount VMware Tools." failed for VM "MyComputer" for the following reason:
The operation is not allowed in the current state.

Using the following command line to remove any existing ISO does not solve the problem:

Get-VM -Name MyComputer | Get-CDDrive | Set-CDDrive -NoMedia

Restarting the computer does not solve the problem neither.

The solution

What worked for me was to stop the VM and start the VM again.
