I haven't tested it, but I want to point out that "Supported" is different than if you can or cannot install it.

Alright, I have now tested it and you CANNOT install .Net Framework 4.0 on Windows 2000. Maybe this will help someone else who came to this forum looking for the answer. If you have an application that require .Net 4.0 (as I did) it will not work with Windows 2000.
