I just installed the last version (5.4.3) on a win2000 and I get no toolbar (the one with new, save, etc. icons). In the settings, it is not disabled. Playing with that does not help. I uninstalled, reinstalled, then rebooted, same thing.
This better not be a bug, because to miss that does not bode well for the rest!
ah hah, thanks, I'm having the same problem and hadn't associated it with the OS, but yes it is happening on my Windows 2000 box.
I'll hang on for a new version which fixes this.
I have the same problem with the toolbar on my Windows 2000 System.
With the version 5.4.2 I have no problem with the toolbar.
I will use the older version at the moment and hope that the bug is fixed in the next version.
