ThinkVantage Toolbox with machines prior to Jan 2004

So I've got an OLD T23 that I'm trying to install the Toolbox on, and get errors during install.  It's trying to send error messages to Microsoft (XP Home SP3) when it hiccups, and the message references pcdrcui.exe.  Once the message sends, the process continues until completion (supposedly).  But when trying to open Toolbox, get the initial banner screen, which goes away, then get the error message again.

I've noticed that there is a reference to systems that are Jan 2004 and later for the Toolbox.  Is this the root of my problem (mfg date is 5/02)?  If so, is there any kind of workaround or is it a complete dead-end?  If workaround, what would that entail?

Any help much appreciated!

I'm sorry, but T23 hasn't been in the support matrix for years.  I have no idea how to make toolbox work on your system.

Re: ThinkVantage Toolbox with machines prior to Jan 2004

Thanks for the response.  I was afraid that the age would be the problem, which is something that can't be changed.  Being out of the support matrix seems to be the rationale for the notation that the Toolbox is for machines with vintage of Jan 2004 and beyond.  Can't teach an old dog new tricks...

And how about T60p and T43p and X61 T ? Allof them ran the toolbox OK under W7, I swaped the HDDs for SSDs and now can not find the vVantage toolbox anywhere. What happened _ it it too difficult let us to use the soft. which run tha last week ?

I am running Toolbox V6.0.5849.3 on my ThinkPad A21m (2628 G1U) running with Windows XP Professional with SP3 with no problems other than the machine is extremely slow due to its 800 mz CPU. This machine is of the same vintage as that T23.
