Important information regarding Windows XP

GroupReady was designed and tested under Windows XP, however like any software it does require that your computer and network be running properly. Here are two bulletins that can help you get your computer and network working properly:

1. Microsoft does not support Windows 2000 or Windows XP workstations connecting to a Windows 95/98 or Windows ME server.

Here is what they say on their website:

Corruption can occur if you have Windows NT or Windows 2000 client computers share a file that is stored on a Windows 95, a Windows 98, or a Windows Me file share. This can occur even if the Windows NT or Windows 2000 client have opportunistic locking disabled. This issue is still under investigation, and Microsoft will post further information to this article when it becomes available.

This quote also applies to Windows XP workstations and Snap Servers used to share files. To find out more about this problem, go here.

2. Many new systems come pre-installed with Norton Anti-virus and there is a known issue when running Norton Anti-virus on a Windows 2000/ XP workstation that connects to a network.
