PRTG Probe on Win2000Server SP4?



In order to have an hierarchical structure, I have to install probes in my remote networks. Remote Server available are only Win2000Server SP2 e SP4.. Probe installation fails.. I tried also with VMWare ThinAPP, that let me install the Probe, but PRTG Service doesn't start and fails with: "Missing import C:\Program Files\PRTG Network Monitor\PRTG Probe.exe->kernel32.dll:getprocesshandlecount"

any ideas? there are tricks about it?

Sorry for annoying you.. But I'm stressing your tool with our large networks and I need to test extreme situations.

Thank you very much!

Win 2000 is not a supported OS any more, sorry.
