How to make gamebooster from iobit work with win2k, and other gdi problems that some programs have



according to the site, gamebooster should work with windows 2000
i have virtual machines, and i have seen that using gamebooster allows me to run them faster.. so one of my virtual machines is win2k
i was able to install gamebooster on winxp, windows vista and win7 with no problem
but when it came to win2k i just get an error message
below is the text>
Operating Systems Supported
Microsoft® Windows® 8
Microsoft® Windows® 7 (32-bit and 64-bit) Starter/ Home Basic/Home Premium/Professional/Ultimate
Microsoft® Windows® Vista (32-bit and 64-bit) Starter/Home Basic/Home Premium/Business /Ultimate
Microsoft® Windows® XP (32-bit and 64-bit) with SP2/SP3 or Home/Professional/Media Center
Microsoft® Windows® 2000


Win2k needs the gdi for some programs to work, this must be installed separately
To install gdi on Windows 2000, follow these steps:
1) Get the download here.
2) unpack and find the gdiplus.dll inside this extracted directory
3) Place the DLL file in \winnt\system32
run gamebooster
