VMware Tools

Be sure to install VMware Tools in your guest operating system. For details, see the manual for your VMware product.

After you install VMware Tools, you need to change your Windows 2000 screen area to be greater than 640x480 pixels; if you do not change it, Windows 2000 uses the standard VGA driver, and your performance will suffer.

Known Issues

Known Issues

Guest Screen Saver

Guest Screen Saver

VMware Workstation: On a Linux host with an XFree86 3.x X server, it is best not to run a screen saver in the guest operating system. Guest screen savers that demand a lot of processing power can cause the X server on the host to freeze.

Service Pack 3

Service Pack 3

A Windows 2000 guest with Service Pack 3 installed may fail to boot. A dialog box appears, saying "The Logon User Interface DLL msgina.dll failed to load." For a workaround to this problem, see the VMware knowledge base:
www.vmware.com/support/kb/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=907.
