When running an application developed using WinInet APIs on a Microsoft Cluster Server running Windows NT 4, you may get the following error message:

This function is only valid in Windows NT mode


To resolve this problem, upgrade to either Internet Explorer 4.01 Service Pack 2 or Internet Explorer 5.01.


Internet Explorer 4.0 was not designed to be compatible with Microsoft Cluster Server, but this problem has been resolved in later versions of Internet Explorer.
