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.

Thank you for the information! I'll do a test extraction of PCem v17 on Win2K to see which dependencies are missing. :)

I ran Dependency Walker and this is what I found when I tried to execute PCem:

KERNEL32.DLL is missing the AttachConsole dependency. USER32.DLL is missing GetRawInputData, GetRawInputDeviceInfoA, GetRawInputDeviceList and RegisterRawInputDevices. These dependencies are only present on Windows XP and up.

By the way, if you have gotten around compiling a PCem build for Windows 2000, please let me know. ^_^

Patching the import table is easy.
