I have installed a Win98SE guest into VMWare, then installed VMWare Tools. Everything works fine except that the virtual machine crashes if I try to set the color depth to 256 colors. It's probably for that reason that a full-screen (DirectX) app I am trying to run crashes with exactly the same symptoms.
Could you help me make the 256-color mode work in Win98SE guest (with VMWare Tools installed)?
Thanks in advance,
What VMware product are you using?
Windows 98 and ME are supported by VMware Workstation 7.0, 6.5 and 6.0 (Guest Compatibility)
Check this link (same problem with windows 98)

I am using VMWare Fusion, which runs Win98SE quite well except for the 256 color mode.
I'll try the suggestions in the post you have mentioned and tell you about my success.
Unfortunately, the changes to the .vmx file recommended in the referred post didn't help.
Windows keeps hanging when I try to set the 256-color mode.
PS: BTW, I am trying to play NeverHood on the Virtual Machine.
