Win2k had alpha blending, so Id say always.

And if you actually mean from a programming standpoint, AlphaBlt was part of GDI+ back to win98.

Windows XP supports 32-bit icons, which are 24-bit images with an 8-bit alpha channel. This allows icons to display with smooth edges that appear to blend into any background.

I'm not sure about the earliest build, but I think Build 2430 had blending icons. Correct me if I'm wrong.
