Hello,

We have a used 2003 (refurbed by MPM in 2006) UP2000 HIE printer that runs NT 4.0.

On the computer case is a Microsoft WinXP hologram sticker - does this mean that the printer can be updated to Win XP?

No!

Equipment OEM's have to license each CPU box or OS they sell. Your system machine software 8.4.3? is built to run on an NT OS. Microsoft no longer supported NT when the UP2000's/AP printers were converted to NT from DOS around 1999-2000. Speedline still had to license the CPU box so they used an XP License instead.

Thanks MPMENG.

Our software is 8.3.3.

Has anyone converted to XP (from NT)? What obstacles exist to do this? We'd like the printer on our internal network, where security patches can be applied to the OS.
