I have created a simple application in VB (124k - only 24k zipped) and need to test this out on other Windows operating systems apart from XP.

I do not have Windows 2000, 98 or NT. Does anyone know of any forums (or here?) where it is permitted to make an program available for download where users and contributors can help test them out?

Thanks for the input. I did post my application there today (albeit in a different forum) and one user commented that zipped .exe's files shouldnt be made for download.
I will post in the section you have linked to and let you know how I got on.

You don't have to post your file to the forum. Just publish it in another page (like geocities) and specify the link.

Use VirtualPC or VMWare to create virtual machines on a single computer and install a different OS/Configuration into each machine to test it.

I think is a good idea to make others to test your program. There are many situations you have not figured out, and others can do.
