Genotyper and Windows 2000

I run Genotyper v 3.7 on Win2000 and have only run into one issue.  The
first time I tried to open a genotyper file that was created on a Win98
system on my Win2000 computer, the software froze up.  The file was
transfered over the network to the Win2000 computer first.  When I
disconnected from the network, it opened fine.  At the recomendation of my
field app, I did a "save as" of the file and the problem was corrected.
Other than this, the software has been performing fine (over 4 months,
about 200,000 genotypes scored).

Windows XP, on the other hand, is in a class by itself.  Have not been able
to launch Genotyper on that system and would be interested to hear other
people's experience there.
