Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Essential to get Windows Longhorn functioning at it's finest and can't find it on "Information Collection Book." I can't find a link to it on the internet. Anywhere I can get it?

Ok #1 He does have a driver kit from a previous version of VMware Tools that works better with Longhorn than the current drivers.
and #2 you can find it here: https://www.thecollectionbook.info/information/downloads/

I had two:
VMWare Workstation 6.5
VMWare Workstation 7.0

Those versions provide the best balance - later VMWare versions are too new and break, older versions often don't provide as much functionality.

Which one is better out of those two is usually just a case of trial and error. Some setups will work better with 6.5, others 7.0.
