Workflow recommendations for ASP.NET 2.0/Windows 2000?

Hi,

We would like to use Windows Workflow Foundation, but our server is
Windows 2000, which cannot have .NET 3.0 installed on it.

As WWF requires .NET 3.0, we therefore cannot use WWF. No server
upgrade is planned for a while.

Can anyone recommend a workflow solution to use on Windows 2000/.NET
2.0?

Thanks.

Hello Speccy,

Yep, .NET 3.0 is not supported on Win2k. But u can use other WF engines,
not the .NET one
Google to find more

Yes, I have Googled, and have found a few possible candidates. That's
why I originally asked for a recommendation - I would like to know
whether anyone has had personal use of a good WF engine, and would
recommend it.

Mainstream support for Win2k ended nearly three years ago:

I'm guessing you haven't taken out an extended support contract because they
are *really* expensive and, if you didn't, it's too late now anyway:

Is your head of IT aware of this...?
