Yes, Win2K is still supported.

True, but only the icons in the context menu. Icon overlays still work.

That should work - what is the problem there exactly?

Unfortunately no, it depends on a feature that is not in Win2K.

AFAIK the only thing you lose is the context menu icons. 1.4 does not
have changelists anyway, so you haven't lost those by moving to 1.5.
And 1.5 contains a lot of other new features. Take a look at the
release notes.

Nor for half the world. But XP works just fine - I use it all the time
except on my old laptop which still has Win2K.

Try CollabNet. They may have one available - they certainly produced
them for the release candidates.
