Audiocatalyst runs on Win2K and Windows XP. I use it all the time.

You can also use a program called MusicMatch Jukebox if you are trying to convert .wav files to .mp3's or vice versa.  It's available as a free download at:

http://www.musicmatch.com

I actually prefer this program as my default player for .mp3 and .wav files because it doesn't require nearly as much of your system's resources as Media Player.

Hope this helps!

Well on Xing home page say:
Requires: Pentium™ Processor, 16MB RAM, Windows™ 95/98/NT4.0 (Does not work with Windows® 2000 or ME), Sound card, and CD-ROM supporting digital audio extraction

So how comes it works with you???

It also says int he support section that it is not that it is incompatible with Windows 2000, but has not benn completely certified on Windows 2000.

This probably will not happen since Real.com bought out Xing a while back.

Make sure you update to Audiocatlyst 2.1 and install the ASPI update from Adaptec here BEFORE installing AudioCatalyst. The ONLY problem you should possibly run into is that Windows 2000 will not correctly see the ASPI layer correctly and you will have to rip at 1X speed using analog ripping. That is why you want to make sure to install the ASPI update BEFORE installing AudioCatalyst.

If you already own Audiocatalyst like I do, I would go that route. If not, go with a program like MusicMatch.

I had the same problem a while ago.
I found a single DLL which was to be placed in the WinNT\System32 directory - no reboots, no reinstalling.
When I re-ran Audiocatalyst the ASPI was enabled and worked.

Go to Bart's page about ASPI at http://www.nu2.nu/
The file you are looking for is "wnaspi32.dll"

Hope this works for you too,
Monchanger

Just wanted to point out that I was having troubles with AudioCatalyst too.  Ran across this site searching on this same problem.  Monchanger's answer worked for me!  Thank you!
