Anyone who can say for certain: does v4.5 REPLACE v3.1 or they are separate things??

This was released in Sep. 2001. I don't know why it's just now getting posted here, but it is just the ANSI (Windows 9X) version. The Unicode (Windows NT/2000) version is at: http://www.microsoft.com...ase.asp?ReleaseID=32832

I don't know who posted this, but it's only for Win9X. It's also the client component and not the for developers.

If you have Win2k Pro, you may already have this installer package. Check the version number before downloading. The file is here: C:\WINNT\system32\msiexec.exe -- My version number was 2.0.2600.2; same as the download.

I got an error saying invalid OS when trying to install on Windows 200o Pro SP2, i am assuming this is like previous versions one being for 9X and one for NT based. If so where is the NT version? If not so then what am i doing wrong :-/
