Did anyone manage to install vmtools on ubuntu 13.04?

I am having a problem with kerner headers...and I did the famous ln -s (cd /lib/modules/3.8.0-19-generic/build/include/linux / ln -s ../generated/uapi/linux/version.h .) and it seemed to have solved this problem but created many others - so im still stuck. Any suggestions? I would be interested to know if others also had issues with vmtools on the new ubuntu (i use vm workstation 8 + ubuntu 13.04 all 64 bit).
