Is there a tool that you can run on Windows 2000 that will check for compatibility with 2003? Mainly for programs installed. I'm upgrading several 2000 boxes to 2003?

Are there any other steps or tools you would recommend running before doing a upgrade?

Hello

generally almost all new programs are coming with windows 2003 Supported and old programs releasing service pack/upgrade pack for such purposes .

you need to check program provider websites for OS compatibility, their is no tools exist  to check all your application compatibility with windows 2003 !

OK, thanks for the info. Does anyone else have any suggestions on the general process of doing a upgrade or things to check/remove to make it a smoother process?

Thanks.
