Streets and Trips 2010 on Windows 2000 PC?
bikerjoe
My buddy has a "cop car" computer in his SUV. (red illuminated keyboard, touch screen etc) It is currently running Windows 2000. I have a new Streets & Trips 2010 that I have not installed yet. I bought two 2010 boxes from Fry's for FOUR computers, but have not yet installed the other CD onto either of the remaining two target machines. Now I am thinking of installing ONE of those two legal installations onto his computer, and the other onto one of my other machines.

Can Windows 2000 run Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010? His computer is now running my old S&T 2007 and works fine. I gave it to him when I purchased three of the 2008 CDs. Then the 2009 CDs, and now the 2010 CDs.

If not, I also have my old original 2008 and 2009 CDs. Of course I deleted the old versions when I installed the new versions. I don't need anything more than the latest S&T on my work computers.

Would either of them work on a Windows 2000 platform?

Compatibilty information would certainly be listed in the original documentation and packaging (of S&T 2010 regarding MS2000), if you still have it... You might also find it in the Help section of the programs... You probably could find it in the product review information at the MicroSoft website... It might even be in the fine print on the disk, itself... Otherwise, other readers may know off the top of their heads...

As far as licensed use, it may be found in the licensing agreements...

First search hit for "Streets and Trips 2010" is the Microsoft web site, showing that Windows 2000 is not a supported operating system:

Supported Operating Systems: Windows Server 2003; Windows Server 2008; Windows Vista; Windows XP
You cannot give your second install to a friend. From the EULA (emphasis mine):

Quote:
b. Portable Device. You may install another copy on a portable device for use by the single primary user of the licensed device.
Strictly speaking, this would seem to preclude even a family installing it on two computers and having two different people use them. Practically speaking, this clause is self-policed by the user. The only information that the activation server has is the total number of installs.
