Hi y'all. So I got the spark to rebuild my VM collection I had a long time ago, but it seems something has changed in VMware tools that prevents me from installing VMware tools on Windows 2000, and I've tried different versions of VMware and it still doesn't work. Uhhhh....a little help?

Well, I've tried VMware Workstation Pro 12 and 14 and the latest versions of Player. I looked it up online and it said the only cause could be the lack of SP4, but the copy of 2000 contains SP4 already.

How about VMware Workstation 5.5.x? Since it does work.

If memory serves, you need sp4 and

One of these 2 hotfixes... I think it's the first one.

Windows2000-KB835732-x86-ENU.EXE

windows2000-kb891861-v2-x86-enu.exe

You must install all the remaining hotfixes and updates on Win2k in order to do that.
If you don't want to waste your time installing each update, have a look at a Win2k USP5 iso and VMware tools will work directly :)

You have to install the KB835732 update.

For the record, KB835732 (which is a security update) is included in KB891861 ("Update Rollup 1 for Windows 2000 SP4 and known issues").

The KB891861 page on the MS support site seems to have gone away in the last few months (404 error now), but I found it in this archive of KB articles (link to another forum thread) to confirm that it includes KB835732.
