Installing Call Manager version 4.x has been quite a task. All the tutorials I had been following until recently made reference to OS upgrade version 2000.2.6. However, this version no longer available for download on Cisco.com. I tried to follow the tutorials for version 2000.4.4a but ran into several issues … the registry hack did not work and version 2000.4.4a did not include MS Java … just to name a few. The following tutorials will walk you through every step to successfully install Callmanager with VMWare Player.
