I recently set up a server with Windows Server 2000 (I know it´s old, but the hardware of the computer wouldn´t take more than that). Now I installed xampp which requires the VC redist package 2008. On the website stands it is compatible with Windows 2000 but when I start the setup an error message The procedure entry point HeapSetInformation could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll. How can I solve this problem?

HeapSetInformation is implemented in Windows XP/Server 2003, but not in Windows 2000. Upgrade to at least XP or better to 7/8.


Minimum supported client
    Windows XP [desktop apps only]

Minimum supported server
    Windows Server 2003 [desktop apps only]

There is a comment on that page that states "HeapSet/QueryInformation was added in QFE KB816542 for Windows 2000". Is that true? – Karan Mar 7 '13 at 4:01
@Karan I have no idea. Win2000 is our of support and so you should no longer use it. – magicandre1981 Mar 7 '13 at 5:07
Who said I was using it? :) – Karan Mar 7 '13 at 5:12

You need the Update Rollup 1 update for Windows 2000 SP4 (KB891861).
