Latest AB Ultimate version for Windows XP SP3 32bit

Post by bovirus » Wed Jul 06, 2016 11:52 am

Hi.

I'd like to know which is the latest of AB compatible with XP SP3 32bit.

I tested AB 2016 build 7 Ultimate but report many errors about webkit.exe.

Is it related to Google included into AB Ultimate that is not compatible with XP SP3 32bit?

What AB Ultimate version can I use in XP SP3 32bit?

I'd guess that you're not going to find a ot of people around here running XP to give you an answer.

If no one does, I'd look at the Browser Release forum and start with whatever version was released when XP was still supported by Microsoft, which should be a couple of years old. If that doesn't work, jump back a year, and on and on. Once you find a version with no issues, walk the versions up until you run into issues again.

Once you do find a version, you could try installing the newer version in a different location and swapping out the webkit and gecko folders to see if that would work. If you're having issues with the current version, though, I doubt it will. Still worth a try, though.

I've tested every series on everything from XP to Windows 10, and can confirm the 2016 series is compatible with XP (tests done on XP Pro SP3), as is the 2015 series. However, both are temperamental when using the Chrome engine, as such I'd suggest using either the Trident (IE) or Gecko (Firefox) engines on that OS.

Yep, strangely, it still seems to work (badly, but at least it loaded lol) on my XP test machine.
