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.
