Can I install 6.5 on XP or 2003 Server? What additional process is needed?

Thanks for your help!
Best Regards!

No. The highest it can go if I recall correctly is Windows 2000. You have to install service pack 5a though in order for it to work on Win2k, otherwise use NT 4.0.

At the end of this month, I'm decommissioning my last SQL Server 2000 system! I haven't had to work on 6.5 or 7.0 in about 8 years.

Because the MIS is based on SQL 6.5.If I upgrade SQL Server ,then I must upgrade and test the MIS program.

Thanks for your reply .
I said that because I'm not sure that "Windows 2000" you said include "Windows 2000 Server".
