Windows 7: Windows 2000 in VM Under Win 7??

I am really getting disgusted. I can't get it to work again. Just blue screens all the time.

I've deleted the VM, and will start over from scratch. I'll be back.

Note: Don't use the fancy stuffs just yet (Snapshots, etc).
Use it "barebone mode" only.

OK, back to operational. Bridged networking, static IP assigned. Network access working to the internet.

I even uninstalled a few obnoxious application from the W2K VM that aren't needed in that operating environment.

Now, before I go any further exactly what do I copy to make sure I can get to "this point in time - where we are right now" again? Is it just the PC115.vmdk file? Why doesn't the time stamp on that file change? Obviously the data inside it is changing. Any option to make it do that, otherwise it won't be backed up by the "files" backup, only the image backup will catch it.

Once I copy whatever file you tell me to, then lets revisit the network issue (which is where I was 2 hours ago -wasted...)

Sorry...

If the current "Snapshot" is OK for you, copy the .vmdk file over somewhere safe. I have to go for an hour or two, I'll check the thread when I get back.

Thanks. The file's been copied. I'm going to tinker with the NAT networking again. See you when you return.

Go back to NAT, networking gone.

I thought I would try an experiment and assign the VM an address of 192.168.2.1/255.255.0.0

Well, it works, kind of. I can talk to all my "foriegn" equipment on 25.x, 26.x, 0.x, but nothing on 10.x responds. Probably because those machines have 255.255.255.0 as their subnet masks.

Oh well, nice try. We now return to head banging.

if what you want is to access the files from the vmdk, you don't even need to boot the vm. Install MyOldPCs on your Windows 7 host, then run this command to mount the disk:

vmlitectl.exe mount your-windows-2000.vmdk

it will mount to a drive, for example, Z:, then you can access all files.

After done, dismount it, "vmlitectl umount z:"

Jeffs, I'm back

Let's continue, set it back to bridged, and set your 7 as a router, follow my link earlier (The hard way), edit registry or something
By enabling that, you are allowing Windows 7 to act as a router, a real Router. Then after that, well... the rest should be easy...

That's a good suggestion. Sure, access to files is the goal, but I'd like the old machine to "run" too.

Plus, I'm going to try to use the terminal program on the W2K VM machine to access the VAX since I removed those drivers from the W7 machine in order to make the VM software even install. It's probably what caused your VMLite workstation install to fail as well.
