Just for your information - NTP compiled with Microsoft Visual Studio 
2010 doesn't run on Windows 2000.  This is a known issue with VS 2010. 
However, for those of you using Dave Hart's binaries, those /do/ run 
correctly on Windows 2000.  Perhaps he's using an earlier Visual Studio? 
  It seems that Windows XP, SP2 is actually the minimum version Windows 
required for VS2010 executables.



Whether it's worth updating the Windows source with the fixes suggested 
in those pages I rather doubt, but those folks building NTP on Windows 
themselves may find the information helpful.

I've just successfully compiled 4.2.7p313 from the download, with VS2010 
automatically converting the project from the VS2008 source provided. 
Now running p313 on a couple of PCs Narvik and Ystad) for testing.
