For what it's worth, I'm running a very old application under 7.3 on Win XP
Pro.  It's small and cost prohibitive to upgrade as long as it still runs.
It was built using Pro*COBOL and PowerObjects.

We're just trying to avoid installing a new server with Win2k,

Quite sure that will not work with this app.  If it isn't a v7 client,
it won't work.  Custom app, developer gone, no current source.

Nice, eh?
