It is supported on NT4.0 SP6, do you by chance have a space in the network hostname of the computer? What version of windows installer are you running, you can go to a CMD prompt and type msiexec to find out? You can try downloading and installing version 2.0 which is the latest supported for NT 4.0. Are you running it locally or from a network share?
The hosname of the machine is DBTMASTER, so no, there are no spaces.
The version of Windows Installer is 2.00.2600.0.
I am trying to run it from the local disk, not a network share.
If you check around on the Internet that error can happen for alot of reasons. One thing you might try is to run the exe so it unpacks to the windows temp directory (Should be something like C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp\_is13) but don't close the installer window so you can copy the un-packed files to another directory. Then manually try to run the msi file by doing a msiexec -i "vmware converter.msi"
That did it, thank you.
This time, I did not click OK button when Windows Installer reported "incorrect command line parameters." Instead, I went to Start->Find->Files_or_Folders and did a search for "vmware". , which showed "vmware converter.msi" in two places. I copied one od them to the Desktop and ran msiexec -i "vmware converter.msi" from the command window.
Thank you, again.
