We are on V4R4M0 and can install Client Access on WindowsME.  It works,
but the only things we have tested are the 5250 emulation.

Also, once you create the desktop icon, you can't change it.  If you 
right click on the desktop icon, you get an error message.  The only
way to change it is to go back and create a new one.

In conclusion:
If you just need it for 5250 emulation, it will work at V4R4M0 for sure.
If you need it for anything else, I haven't the foggiest.

All in all, if you can stay away from WinME for now, until the vendors
come out with full WindowsME compliant software I would so so.  We are.

Jim Langston

Subject: Client Access and Windows 2000

Hi Everybody,

What is the compatibility between Windows 2000 and Client Access?
- - at V3r2?   (we'll be off this old system it in 2-3 weeks, anyway)
- - at V4r5?   (currently being installed on a brand new 720)

Do we need PTF?

The Client Access CD we received for our new system does not mention
Windows 2000 at all!

All PCs currently connected to our V3R2 are running Windows NT 4.0
WorkStation.
We are now getting Windows 2000.
Last month I installed CA on a PC running Windows 2000. Few DAYS LATER,
the user complained about loosing connection with the server (on that
day only). After a short investigation and emergencies at the time, I
un-installed CA. Since then, the PC seems to be working fine.
Was that a good move?
