    I get the following error message when I try to load the MS Vertual machine:

    >>The Microsoft VM you are attempting to install is a >>protected system component and can only be updated >>with a later release of the operating system or service >>pack.

    I am running Windows 2000 prof Service Pack 4 with all critical updates except for the VM update which it wont allow me to install.
    Appreciate your help on this
    Thanks
    Frank

    There was a Sun Java -v- MSVM issue over SP4 for 2000 but I can't find the relevant KB. Suggest a little Googling might find you what you need.
