I looked into this once. The executables link to functions in the windows kernel which are simply not available in W2k - some of those have to do with WPA, and are of course undocumented.

Making it run requires significantly more than just cheating the version check - trust me. You'd need to either modify the binaries (it would be REALLY cute to make an Application Compatibility thingy which does this on the fly - modifying binaries at load time is a built in feature in W2k) - or you'd need to make a special edition of some NT kernel files, which "implements" the missing DLL entry points, and redirects all other entry points to the actual NT kernel DLL's. Not a simple task - but definately not impossible either. B)

Best regards,

:lol: Nope

I'll have to corret myself btw - the 5.1 specific entry points are now documented, and they are meant for code manifests - not necessarily WPA. :rolleyes:
