Results List Not Always Accurate!
My experience with upgrading to Windowxs XP was not a joyfull one! Hoever, after three months for problems it's finally working. Once thing I noticed was that the results you get an in any type of listing that checks for XP compabitily may not always be correct (I used the XP CD and did the 'checkupgrade only' option). For example, the list said my 2001 verion of VirusScan was not XP compatible! I had to do some investigative research to find out, yes, it was compatible. Before taking the results list as accurate, thoroughly investigate the results. I determined that my version of VirusScan was XP compatible because (1) the documentation said it was, and (2) it came out AFTER XP was released. My guess is that the 'checkupgradeonly' option checks for certain things. And since my version of VirusScan came out after XP, the certain thing it was looking for did not exist!
