Windows XP / MagicQ

Hi everyone.

Helping a venue refit / upgrade.

They are currently using an HP Thin Client PC to run MagicQ.

I didn't pay close attention to the installed version (or that v1.8.5.6 doesn't list XP) and had a crack at uninstalling the old and putting in the new.

I got a failure caused by the extremely small storage space (400MB for files, 96MB Flash RAM) when installing off the desktop (C:) so tried again without luck from my USB flash drive. Failure seems to be lack of space for expanding the installer.

I tried using 7-zip to expand the .exe installer to a folder on my laptop and dropping that folder to the desktop of the Thin Client. That folder appears to be "portable" (works on my laptop) but I get some .DLL errors on the Thin Client.

What is the last version of MagicQ that supported XP?

Anything I can try to make this work? Client (as per usual) has no budget for a new PC...

Cheers!

Is it just me or is the link to the XP download broken?

It is working fine, but you need to login on the bugtracker!
