Latest Version of Software Running on XP


Recommended Posts


This is a nice surprise:

MinGW compiler v8.4.0 works on Windows XP

Not the normal release though (the latest v6 is already not working on XP) but the ReactOS Build Environment 2.2.1 version.

This v8.4.0 MinGW compiler does seem to have difficulty finding its headers in the normal .\include folder, but it works flawless when I put these headers inside the other include folder, some subfolders down the .\lib\gcc\ folder.

ReactOS Build Environment 2.2.1 also includes CMake v3.17.2, but without the GUI component. As for the official CMake packages: v3.13.5 is latest that runs on XP.

C++ Redistributables are no longer compatible with XP.

I've just updated them and they do install on XP, but they don't work (i.e they can't be run).

As I rarely update the Microsoft C++ Redistributable 2015-2019, I rolled back to the June 2020 version and it works like a charm, so somewhere between June and January, they must have broke XP compatibility. This is yet another stab by M$ on the already agonizing XP chest... :(

(if you wanna pinpoint which version is the very last XP compatible Microsoft C++ Redistributable 2015-2019 security update, then go for it and please let me know).

Thanks for the heads up on this!
:yes:
If it needs another thread (this thread is really only about web multimedia technologies) I'll split it off, but we'll see how it goes.

Which program to check? I cannot remember any suitable programs.

I just noticed that the topic has been split in Part 1 and Part 2.

I have included it in my XP2ESD project too. It's good to have it preinstalled in image for future :)
