I have a number of old games I'd like to play which seem to only run well inside of Windows 95. I therefore have endeavored to get a Windows 95 installation running inside of VMWare. However, when I try to install VMWare Tools, I receive an "illegal operation" dialog box. I was able to get around this by manually running the msi installer and running the MSI inside of the VMWare Tools package, but the display adapter driver still won't install.
I then followed the manual driver installation instructions (i.e. go through device manager, select "Have Disk", pick the file in the C:\Program Files\VMware folder...), but now VMWare itself complains with this:
Jan 21 16:00:09.716: vcpu-0| [msg.svga.legacyDriver] Unable to use legacy SVGA driver. A video driver in the guest operating system has attempted to use an older SVGA interface than the one this virtual machine is configured to use. Very likely, your guest will run in VGA mode (640x480 with only 16 colors) instead of in SVGA mode.
Jan 21 16:00:09.716: vcpu-0| If you are in the middle of upgrading a virtual disk, this message is normal and you should continue to follow the upgrade instructions. Otherwise, it indicates that your guest video drivers are probably out of date and will require reinstallation.
Any ideas on what to do here?
