Problem installing WAS preview on XP

Hi,

I tried to install the sneak preview on a win XP machine. The installation aborted with the message that I should install SP1 for Win 2000. In the readme.txt file in the root directory of the CD in the system requirements section XP is not listed. Does anybody have an idea what is the problem with XP?

    Hello Kai,

    this is a known bug for the Sneak Preview edition. If you upgrade from Windows 2000 to XP then the installer does not work. It only works for "fresh" XP installations.

    Greetings
