RunRev 4.5 compiled (NOT) running on Windows 2000

I just tried to launch rev 4.5 in a Win2K virtual machine, and the following message popped up:

Revolution.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point freeaddrinfo could not be located in the dynamic link library WS2_32.dll

So it looks like it is using a system call that is not available on Win2K. Best to file a bug report in the Quality Center so they can either fix it or update the system requirements: <>
