Hi,

I am running a legacy Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP4 inside VMware ESXi 6 Upd. 2.  The VM was copied from ESXi 4 and it is running VMware tools 4.0.0.
Tools-Update from vSphere-Client does not work.  The installer crashes before it starts to ask any questions or to do anything.

Is the current version of VMware tools supported for Windows 2000?  Which is the recommended version von VMware tools for such an old guest?

Thanks,
Ralph
