Active Window Tracking

In NT 4.0 Workstation we were able to make window tracking like X-Windows i.e. the active window is where the mouse is only. You don't have to click on a window to make it active and respond to keyboard input. The registry setting used to be in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse and the name was ActiveWindowTracking and you change the value from 0 to 1 for this to happen. In Windows 2000 this doesn't work. Does anybody know how to get the window to become active based only on mouse location and not clicking? Thanks.

If you don't have it download Tweak and Xmouse
http://www.microsoft.com/ntworkstation/downloads/PowerToys/Networking/NTTweakUI.asp

After you have it installed both programs launch Tweak and go to the "Mouse" tab and look near the bottom for "Activation follows Mouse (X-Mouse)".
