We have number of applications packaged for Win2K platform and now we want to use them for the XP OS.

What we want to know is :-

1) What all problems we can face in using those packages for XP i.e. functionality etc?
2) Is there a tool to convert packages from win2k to XP platform?

My 2p worth...

You shouldn't face any real issues - depending on how your environment set up and how the packages were created.

The only issues I can imagine are:

1. Sutble variation in standard user privileges on C:\
2. Depending on your installations your Windows folder MAY be named differently, hence if you previously hardcoded it anywhere in CAs etc etc.....

I agree with GB1; in many cases your packages will be useable on XP.

There are always those exceptions, though. I ran into one of them after repackaging Adobe Illustrator CS for XP using Wise Package Studio 5.1 The package would not install correctly on Win2K.

Ultimately, it comes down to have a thorough testing process for every package.
