Re: [platform-swt-dev] Problem with SWT 3.0 M8 on certain Win32 platforms

These platforms are still supported, including NT. Enter a problem report against Eclipse, not SWT for the "main window won't open" or whatever it is.

Erik, you will catch more flies with honey, simple as that.

[platform-swt-dev] Problem with SWT 3.0 M8 on certain Win32 platforms

I know for sure that SWT 2.132 works fine on win98se and nt4sp6. Last year, I
deployed an application to those platforms.

So, if I understand things right, we've now been cut off from win98se and
probably also nt4sp6?

Did SWT actually get *better* from 2.132 to 3.044(M8)? Did SWT actually *gain*
anything in exchange for losing these platforms?

Maybe it's better to stay on 2.132, retrofit any relevant bug fixes, and evaluate one
by one which additions, changes, and especially new dependencies, are acceptable ...
