Upgrading Win2000 to Win2003, should I do it?



I am very satisfied with Win2000 but there are a few programs I need to use
that require some components found in Win2003. Since I'm considering making
this move, I'd like to ask for some information and suggestions. How big a
deal is it, how difficult/complicated will it be, and are there other native
advantages or disadvantages that will come with this upgrade. I currently
am using Win2000 on a home LAN with two or three computers.

Hello jbclem3,

Do you talk about a domain environment or workgroup?

It is not that difficult/complicated. Windows 2000 support is gone, one point
to change.

Which additional software is installed on the server?

Best regards

msvcr90.dll is a redistributable Runtime library file, it should be in
your stock market quote software, reinstalling the software should take
care of this error message. If for some reason the file is not in the
software package you can download and install the runtime libraries:

Download details: Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)

It's really up to you but in my opinion Server 2003 is overkill for your
needs, if you don't want to buy a new computer upgrading your machine to
Windows XP would probably be a better fit.
