    Any idea when a non-Windows2000 version will be available?
    Thanks

    Soon. <grin>

    Beta 1 will supposedly run on non-Windows 2000 OS's (probably NT) and that's
    due in the next month, from what I'm hearing.

    Why aren't you using Windows 2000, though? It's so superior to anything else
    it isn't funny.

    You can run the version out now on Win98 for sure.
    Just:
    1) Download the .net from Microsoft.
    2) Open the setup.exe with WinZip and extract all files to some directory.
    3) Run instmsi.exe . This should run pretty fast.
    4) Run comsdk.msi . This one hung up on me for a long time. I killed the
    process a few times before it took. It got hung up aobut 20% through the
    install. When it finally went this step took about 10 minutes to install.
    Your times may vary =)
    5) Run comredist.msi . This step installed pretty fast. This registers most
    of the .dll's needed to run .net it seems.

    Microsoft doesn't support/admit it. But it works.
