Please disregard the above post, after reading other posts here (which I should have done 1st,lol) I downloaded a new copy, retrieved my most recent backup, restored it, then all was good again! When I restarted aw2k it still asked me to register now or run on trial.
Luckily I had saved a copy of my renewal email within the program, which had my newest reg code!
After re-installing xp to the new drive one main snag was I have forgotten my outlook express email password (its been over 8 years) & have encountered over 20 dead ends trying to recover it, thing were looking pretty grim & still have not gotten back into OE, but once aw2k was restored I'm able to get all my email again through it! (a lifesaver!)
