Manually installing the VMXNET driver in a Windows NT


You can use the VMXNET driver included with VMware Tools for a Windows NT guest. However, VMware Tools cannot install the VMXNET driver automatically. You need to install the driver manually.


To install the VMXNet driver manually:

  1. From the vSphere Client, begin installing VMware Tools. The VMware Tools installer CD is mounted. Do not proceed with the installation.
  2. Open Control Panel > Network > Adapters, and uninstall the network driver currently selected. Note the current network settings.
  3. Begin adding a network adapter. If the installer prompts you to reboot the guest, resume these instructions after the guest reboots.
  4. Install the VMXNet driver, located at C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Tools\Drivers\vmxnet.
  5. Choose VMware Virtual Ethernet Adapter from the list.
  6. Configure the network adapter as necessary.
