Favourite OS Windows XP SP3
I have Longhorn builds 3718, 4074 and 5048 installed in VMWare Workstation 12 Pro. Is it possible to install VMWare Tools on Longhorn builds? I tried with 3718, by installing Windows Installer 3.5 in XP compatibility mode after unpacking the MSI and moving the enu localisation files to 'update', then running VMWare Tools with XP compatibility, and BSOD'd and rendered the OS unbootable. Is it possible to actually install the tools on any LH build?
Thanks for any response, and feel free to give me some instructions on how to do it with those specific builds. Thanks!
