|Operating system||Microsoft Windows® 2000 Server (3)
Microsoft Windows NT® Server 4.0 with Service Pack 5 or later (3)
For client components on client computers only, the following systems also qualify:
Windows 2000 Professional
|Network software||Windows 2000, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 98, or Windows 95 built-in network software; and TCP/IP (included with Windows).|

1 Setup installs a number of components that can be shared by other applications and may already exist on the computer.
2 Internet Explorer is required for Microsoft Management Console (MMC) and HTML Help. A minimal installation is sufficient, and Internet Explorer does not need to be your default browser. Internet Explorer is not required for the client-only installation.
3 Analysis Services should not be installed on a domain controller; this installation configuration is not supported.
