Install 95/98 only apps on 2000

By Pat McGrath ·
I remember a tech tip article about a utility that allows you to install 95 or 98 only applications on 2000. These applications check the OS version and wont let you install on 2000. The tool was suppose to trick the App into thinking it was on 95 or 98 os. Does anyone remember the name of the tool or can link me to the article? I have not been able to find it.

Thanks,

pat

On your Windows 2000 CD under the support directory is an executable which allows you to install the Windows 2000 Support Tools. Once installed you will have a program in your start menu called APPCOMPAT, which allows you to make WIndows 2000 look like any of the previous OS's

Cheers
