I got this error on my host PC when I copied/installed files from the host PC to my VMWare client machine. Adding or changing the following registry key on the host PC resolves the problem:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters -> "DisableDos" -> "REG_DWORD" -> "1"
This event occurs on VMware hosts when you use a virtual machine and try to run a setup program from the file system of the host computer. See the link to “Problems with networking (Denial of Service)” to resolve this problem.
This problem may occur if you have Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) segmentation offloading enabled on the host computer's network adapter. See ME888750
to solve this problem.
for a workaround on this problem on Windows Server 2003.
We got this from a Windows 98 Second Edition machine, trying to copy a file from a domain controller shared folder. The win98 would get various error messages about being unable to copy the file, and the server logs that information.
