Hi Steve, Just for my memory, what happened before XP came out re WE pricing for Windows 2000, or was that it wasn't available? I remember the killer at the time was that it didn't support NT, which was what we used at uni, so we went for something else, but I thought it worked with 2000 before XP came out. I realise that when the XP compatible version was released, the standard version wouldn't work with win2k. Thanks. Andrew.
