On Windows 2000 Workstation the upgrade files-only installation fails 

  The ordinal 3837 could not be located in the dynamic link library 

Setup: ntp-4.2.4p3-RC1 at foehr-o-win32-setup.exe works fine.

The upgrade worked OK on some Windows XP Pro systems and one XP Home 
system.  Intentionally, not tested on NT4.
