Windows Utilities Removed During Windows 2000 Upgrade
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional
After you upgrade to Windows 2000 from Microsoft Windows 95 or Microsoft Windows 98, some Microsoft Windows utilities or accessories that you copied or moved to a Desktop folder may not be available.
During the upgrade process, some utilities or accessories that are written specifically for Windows 95 or Windows 98 may be removed from the computer depending on whether or not the actual file (or a shortcut to the file) is located in the Desktop folder.
This behavior is by design.
There are several conditions under which the utilities are not migrated:
- The following files are not migrated to the Windows 2000 installation if the program is located in the Desktop folder:
- The following five file are not migrated during the upgrade process regardless of whether or not the actual file, or a shortcut to the file, is located in the Desktop folder:
- An exception to the above conditions is the Winhlp32.exe file. This file is migrated whether the file (or a shortcut to the file) is located in the Desktop folder.
