Most software that runs under NT4 (i.e. it was developed using the NT4 SDK) will run under Win2000.  If you are running running MS Visual C++ as your development environment, you don't even need to upgrade it.  VC++ 6.0 with it's Service Pack 3 runs just find on Win2000.  

If all else fails, develop on NT4 and test on W2K until you vendor ships a W2K SDK for this product.  If they can't or won't give you a ship date, I'd consider alternate suppliers.
