not a valid Win32 application error shows when installing v3 24.1 on Win2K
machines. Assistance in resolving this issue would be appreciated,
This is because we've built 3.24.1 with the latest version of Microsoft's
development tool (Visual studio 2010), which only supports target operating
systems of Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 - the header in the executable
states it requires OS version 5.1 or greater, and Windows 2000 is version 5.0.
Windows 2000 left Mainstream Support on 30 June 2005 and Extended Support
(that you have to pay MS for!) on 13 July 2010. Because of this, Microsoft
removed it from the list of supported target OSes of VS2010.
Your best bet is to use a previous version of PasswordSafe - 3.23.1 should
still work, and there are no critical bugs in that version.
I will modify the installer to warn about this when trying to install on win2k
machines - sorry about the confusion.
I expected that would be the case.
3.23 works just fine on the 2K boxes and we have had no issues with it since
it came out.
Password Safe is a great program and your effortrs keeping it that way are
