Try to install the VMNet driver to a NT4.0 guest on VMware 4.1 but fail.

"Setup failed to install the VMXNet driver automatically. This driver will have to be installed manually".

The NT4.0 is totally isolated from the network. Any idea ?

Can you try and install the Setup.exe and see if it works?

Did you install VMware Tools?

Looking through the HCL, (Hardware Compatibility List), I could not find Windows NT 4.0 listed anymore, it's possible the drivers have been removed from the current version of VMware Tools.

You would have to find an older version of VMware Tools, from vSphere 2.0-3.5.
