I'm trying to search for the following: .net framework 4 and windows 2000 . But the search machine here won't allow this search because one of the words has less than 3 letters. I assume that the "4" has been nabbed. Can someone please explain to me how I can get around this rule?

Use "dotNET" as a search term. Or use Google with the "site:msfn.org/board" parameter.

dotnet 4 doesn't work, and it has to have the number 4 or it's not the search I want. The other suggestion, what a great way to discourage searching to have to go to Google just to make a simple search on this site.

Google search is almost always better than built-in forum search engines :) (as long as the database is indexed).

If you're looking for a .NET Framework 4.0 installer for Windows 2000 then I'd recommend reading this topic:

For a time, jbclem, this site used Google as its default search engine. What a great way to discourage constructive replies than to criticize the replies given... ;)
