It more than likely is. I think you might have to bite the bullet and
install XP2 - not the least because many programs are now seeming to need
it. I've grabbed a few in the last few months that ask for your OS version
and XP2 is listed separately from XP.

My past has caught up with me. A second instal stops with the message it
needs XP SP2. Is that the XP upgrade I shied away from installing
because people were experiencing problems?
