I have to use win2000 for some old software that is win2000-specific and have just installed it in VMPlayer v5 and it works well. Problem is the standard win2000 font is skinny and gray and not easily readable.
I have the same win2000 (original install CD) on a laptop and the font was fine to read even when I plugged the VGA cable into this same monitor. I can only assume that the video driver that Player is using is messing with the fonts.
How can I fix this as everything I run on the Player-win2000 is using this weedy little font, but only within Player.
I can't change the font within the old software I need to run as it uses the win200 default font.
Have you installed the VMware Tools in the guest? That will install the VMware video driver - and I've never seen this issue with my Win2000 guests... so I can only assume it doesn't like the default VGA driver.
