When you try to install BackOffice Server version 4.5 from the Visual Studio, Enterprise Edition version 6.0 package, you may receive the following error message:
This product can not be installed on Windows NT Workstation 5.0.
This issue can occur when you try to install BackOffice Server 4.5 on a Windows 2000 Professional-based computer in preparation for the installation of Visual Studio 6.0 on the same computer. This does not work because you cannot install a server program (BackOffice Server 4.5) on a non-server program (Windows 2000 Professional). Although BackOffice Server 4.5 is a prerequisite to the installation of Visual Studio 6.0 on a Windows 2000 Server-based computer, it is not a prerequisite for a Windows 2000 Professional-based computer.

The following excerpts include the guidelines that are included in the Getting Started Setup Guide for Visual Studio 6.0 to help prepare a Window 2000-based computer for the installation of Visual Studio 6.0.
