Error while launching the Integration Components Installer

7/9/2012, I was importing 2 virtual machines from VirtualBox to Virtual PC, uninstalling the drivers on Windows 2000 provided by VirtualBox, importing that virtual machine to Virtual PC, installing the drivers provided by Virtual PC, but suddenly i got the following error: D:\setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application.

Please help me.

Microsoft Virtual PC Integration Components can only be installed to and work only with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 guests. They will not install nor run on Windows 2000 guest.

Yes. Both VMware (VMware Tools) and VirtualBox (Guest Additions) support Windows 2000.

What about Windows 95? I have the exact same problem with that.

When using a virtual machine, integration with host system is essential. Mouse and keyboard capture, cross OS copy & paste, networking and so on, it simply is much easier to get guest OS to work for you when integration components are installed and enabled.

Microsoft Virtual PC Integration Components only support and can be installed on XP, Vista and Seven virtual machines, as I told you earlier. In VirtualBox these components are called Guest Additions, and can be installed and enabled on Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Seven, Linux and Unix virtual machines. VMware is the best choice when using pre-Win2000 OS's, VMware's integration components are called VMware Tools and they support and can be installed on Windows 95 and later, Linux and Unix virtual machines.
