For what little it's worth - I'm running a networked version of RefMan 7 under 
NT 4.0 sp4, and it works just fine. I doubt that your problem is a general 
inability of NT to run RefMan - maybe something screwy about Refman 8.  I 
wouldn't be surprised.  WordPerfect 6 was working fine for me under NT 4 and I 
updated to WordPerfect 8 to stay in synch with the rest of the department.  Big 
mistake - the damn thing now craps out on me daily.  Maybe the same is true of 
RefMan 8.  I'd call up RIS and get on their case if I were you.
