Can it really be done? I have Whistler build 2296, msiexec.exe in that build is in version 1.5. Because of that, the setup cannot be opened, and when I tried getting a newer version of Windows Installer it says it only works in build 2600. So it is possible to install the VM Additions in any other Whistler Builds?

There are no VM Additions available for Beta Windows.

For VMWare you can use the VMWare 5.5 drivers and install them manually.
But you cant use the installer (not on all builds)

And for VPC, there drivers for the videocard are present.

Thats odd, as I have got VM Additions working on Windows Neptune and several Longhorn builds, everything worked fine and the only problem was, I struggled to get the virtual sound card working.

I thought i said that its not working some beta builds.

Additions works on Neptune and early longhorn builds (beta 1 also).

But not all whistlers because they need other type of .MSI files.

For VMWare Audio drivers you must normally install the .exe files.
In VPC there is a standard card with drivers available on the install CD/DVD.

Otherwise use my Server 2003 Audio Driver floppy for Virtual PC.
