If you have 2.2.1 or earlier, then Mathematica will probably work fine. If you have 2.2.2 or a later 2.x version, then Mathematica will not perform evaluations unless you're on a network (and I'm not 100% for certain that even then it will work). The issue here is that the method for front end-kernel communication changed significantly between 2.2.1 and 2.2.2. 2.2.2 and later 2.x versions used MathLink for FE-kernel communications, but that version of MathLink required TCP for communications between front end and kernel on all NT class operating systems (Windows 2000 is an NT class operating system). Version 3 and later versions work fine with Windows 2000. Sincerely, John Fultz jfultz at wolfram.com User Interface Group Wolfram Research, Inc.
