Is this the 1.33 version?

I have Win 98 and I just tried the new version and this is what I saw:

Ran the executable, unzipped to a temp folder, right clicked on the .inf file and selected install. It told me it needed the TweakUI disk, I hit Ok and since the right directory was selected, I just hit ok. It started copying files, the help screen popped up, I closed that and it finished installing the program.

Is this what you see on Win2k? I would think it would be the same.

Here's a quote from this very extensive site on TweakUI:

From Tweak UI Guide:
UPDATE! Now that Windows 2000 (NT5) is upon us, we have a new TweakUI to get our teeth into. This new version works in all versions of Windows and Windows NT, however platform specific options only apply to that particular platform. Short of re-writing portions of this article, let me point out the differences between TweakUI (98) and TweakUI (2000) here:

The "bugs" in the release version of TweakUI (98) are fixed.
All the mouse-related items now appear on the mouse tab.
The X-Mouse delay setting has made a welcome return.
The IE4 tab has been renamed Shell.
IE Enabled has been changed to Shell Enhancements.
Active Desktop Enabled is now Allow Active Desktop to be turned on/off.
Special Folders now appear on the My Computer tab.

Installation is no different to previous versions, however do make sure you uninstall and then remove the installation files from previous versions prior to installing any other version - otherwise the previous version will be re-installed instead.

The original TweakUI (2000) pre-release (v1.30.0.1 prerelease 1) expired on the 15th March 2000. The follow-up release (v1.32.0.1 prerelease) expired on 8th August. However, a new release (v1.33) has since been made available, which can be freely downloaded. Download - TweakUI (2000) v1.33.

Now I have to go uninstall and reinstall mine.
