A better solution is installing the Update Rollup for Windows 2000 SP4 (KB891861) ; it includes KB835732 and many others hotfixes.

After the installation of the Update Rollup (and restart the VM), you can install VMware Tools in Windows 2000 guest.

For even better results slipstream the rollup to the ISO prior to the install.
Windows Defender for great justice! Bugs are an international trading company. I need to defeat the anti-debugging and obfuscation methods. It wasn't for Intel's absurd ability to load in ie6. Why even waste time with people in an envelope?

Nice find! I've installed KB835732 (on Win2K SP2), and this makes VMWare Tools work perfectly, starting SP2 (you don't even need SP4!). Thank you! :)
