Hallo everbody,

i do not know this is the right forum so moderators please feel free to move it to a another more correct subforum.
i was just wondering do people ever encounter a application that only works on windows 2000?
so far i know windows XP had the same kernel as windows 2000 so theoreticly the application work on both operation systems can somebody maybe enlighten me on this subject?

With best regards,

Cybermage

If this occur the cause would often be hard-code check for OS version.
I'm quite sure they would work on XP too so to make it running on XP I would use ACT to tool the OS version.

The ACT Tool already helped me today.
Had a legacy application that worked onder xp with admin right flawless but when i started with user rights only the executable runs but no additional processes spawned. Invest a lot of time with procmon to fined a solution but nothing except the additional process spawning when running with admin rights. On the gamble used the ACT tool and faked for the executable NTSP5 and it worked!
Monday finding it out to script it in a custom action but i have already a pretty good idea to do it.
