Last Versions of Software for Windows 2000

VirtualBox 1.5.6 is the final version officially supported for vanilla Windows 2000, but VirtualBox 2.0.4 is the final version using a modified kernel driver made by BWC.

But, if you use the extended kernel and core, you can use VirtualBox 4.1.22 (and possibly up to about 4.1.32 - 4.2 introduces driver incompatibilities). However, you must manually install the kernel/networking/USB drivers from the "drivers" folder in VirtualBox's program folder using the included infs.

USB 2.0 passthrough seems to be broken, just like in 1.5.x. 

I've wasted a massive amount of time trying to get VBox 4.x to work, but to no avail. Removing the OS check with Orca causes a premature fail of the setup program. The last version I was able to install with either Orca of FCWIN2K is 2.1.4.
