you have to have it in an earlier version or install it yourself.
Q1: Is the Microsoft VM installed or updated by Windows 2000 SP4?
A1: No. The Microsoft VM is not installed or updated by Windows 2000 SP4. This information applies to both update and integrated (or slipstreamed) installations of SP4, including the integrated Windows 2000 SP4 CD-ROM.
Q2: Is it possible to have the Microsoft VM installed on a Windows 2000 SP4-based computer?
A2: Yes. Existing versions of the Microsoft VM are not removed when you upgrade Windows 2000, or a previous operating system with the Microsoft VM (such as Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition), to Windows 2000 SP4. Additionally, some versions of the Microsoft VM might still be distributed by independent software vendors (ISVs) who have a license for redistribution as provided by the terms of the license agreements for Microsoft Visual J++ or the Microsoft SDK for Java products. Because the Microsoft VM files are not protected by the Windows File Protection (WFP) feature in Windows 2000 SP4, redistributable versions of the Microsoft VM can be installed on a Windows 2000 SP4-based computer with or without the Microsoft VM.
