I'm currently running a 64-bit version of Windows, but I have some old games with 16-bit installers that no longer run. I've set up a VM running 32-bit Windows XP on VMWare Workstation, and the games install fine in the VM, but I'd really like to install them on my actual desktop.
Is there a way to watch for filesystem/registry/settings changes in VMWare? Basically, I'm just looking for a list of new or edited files and new or edited registry keys. In the past, I've copied files and registry entries over manually, but some installers put files or keys in odd places and I can't easily find them.
The end goal is to write a new installer for the games (preferably in .NET) so that I can install them more easily and "properly".
Edit: I'm running the VM on VMWare Workstation.
