Compatibility was actually dropped with 64 bit Windows, so in XP or Vista dependending on whether one counts from niche or mainstream product. Not sure if it's been dropped from 32 bit Windows too since then.

DOS compatibility was dropped at the same time.

Probably close enough to never from your point of view anyway.
