p.s.: This is not the only project that does this, I guess some compiler code references a DLL function that differs or is new in later Windows versions. Current MS VC++ versions need to be instructed to support older windows versions, it doesn't do that by default anymore.

Probably not really a problem, Win2k with support for only 2 logical(!) CPUs will not be used so much anymore.

This is probably because I just compiled the 32 bit binary with visual studio 2010. I think there's a way to do it using visual studio 2008, but i'm not quite sure if it's worth the headache to set it all up...

Same problem with Win XP SP1.

It's not just this project with XP SP1 and 2K, I know of at least 5 others.

Not worth doing a special app for these dinosaur OSs IMO.

Mee Too:

W2K old box, can't handle most mem requirements of projects, but had worked on DNA, so I was hoping to continue. Ive detatched and reconnected but still get this error.

Is there any hope?
