While in general agreement that I am not interested in moving to XP, one is
faced with the fact that almost all new PCs come with it.  Thus usres buying
partticularly name brand PCs are going to be faced with using XP, or coming
up with an old license for win 2k (my preference).

I hate that Protel  is going to have to invest engineering effort into XP
compatability rather than autorouter and other basic feature upgrades.
Basically as I see it we are all going to be paying for the fact that XP is
not compatible with previous windows versions.  Protel has no choice but to
make their product compatible with the latest version of windows.

Why is anybody bothering with a lousy piece of software like XP in the first
place?

I attempted to find a faq for this forum but failed. I hope this question
has not been over-asked.
I have a new PC with WinXP home, when Protel 99 se is installed. XP help and
support fails to run. System info fails to run, sfc /scannow fails to run. A
comlete format and re-install is required to get these items operational
again and they fail immediately when Protel 99 se is installed. I know that
the Protel site shows Win 2000 compatibility and not XP but does anyone know
a workaround for the problems with XP?
Or has anyone else experienced the same problems but do not know a
workaround?

Regards
