solve the problem the client can't run on XP
« on: July 22, 2014, 08:58:05 AM »

It seems still many people use xp, but the official client can't run on it.

I think there may some compatibility problem with qt, so I google it, and I find this post.  http://www.tripleboot.org/?p=423.

It seems not difficult to solve it. I just  write a post on chinese board https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=5995.0

hope @bytemaster see this post, and release a official version to solve this problem, that we don't need to modify the exe file everytime.

ps: please vote for delegate-laow, thanks   :D

I doubt there will be an official binary for windows xp, the OS isn't supported by microsoft anymore and it's 13 years old.

You can of course upgrade to a modern linux (lubuntu/elementary os/linux mint), for which there are instructions and support for setting up bitshares client/running the client.

Believe it or not, we will probably have XP support as part of the over-all windows crash fix.   No promises, but likely.

Is it a side-effect of the windows crash fix or are you specifically working to add support for xp?

It's nice for the users of XP I guess, but using an end of life operating system for storing and using crypto-currency isn't really the smartest thing you can do in my opinion.
