#10773 closed Feature request (rejected)

bring back XP support. changes to installer only needed?

Description

Vista installers typically require a call to
RequestExecutionLevel Administrator
(NSIS)
there are plenty of XP boxes out there, including approx. 70% of the machines in this house.

please add XP sup-port back - I hope it's still supported by the compiler. with Visual Studio, you would need to backdate the compiler to 2005, or maybe 2012 or 2010.

gcc it's a version backdate.

I use filezilla to maintain web sites typically. sometimes for downloads of ISOs (binary).

Why don't you simply upgrade to a more modern operating system?

try mingw-w64 for a compiler instead of visual studio and see how that does.

please don't dis what I purchased on my limited income. thanks.

Many modern operating systems are completely free, e.g. Ubuntu: http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop

FileZilla is already compiled using mingw-w64. Windows XP simply lacks many important API functions needed by FileZilla.
