RE: Software options?
Did you download the 64 bit version of the windows exe ? That would show as an invalid win32 exe on a 32bit version of windows try this one

RE: Software options?
Unfortunately, OSCAR does not support Windows XP.  According to the OSCAR installation page, OSCAR supports Windows 7, 8, and 10.

Quote:The Windows version of OSCAR is available as both 32 bit and 64 bit. In general the 32 bit version will work on all computers using Windows 7, 8 or 10.

If anyone has gotten OSCAR to run on Windows XP, let me know so I can give a more accurate answer.

The program you are trying to run is the installer. While I could create a zip file of just the program itself so that the installer was not needed, I doubt that would run either. I no longer have an XP machine to test it on.  If you want to try, let me know and I will create a zip file of 32-bit OSCAR for you.
The current version of OSCAR is 1.2.0.  We recommend upgrading from any earlier version.

RE: Software options?
Unless someone else is using an XP system, and can explain how they did it to a semi-Luddite, I will let this rest. My primary motivation in asking about OSCAR was curiosity.

Thanks for all the replies and help!

RE: Software options?
I was going to try and help out by loading XP on an old computer.  Boy!, I've forgotten all the blasted drivers that you have to load after install of the base OS.  It will take me days, at best, to find all the required drivers.  My next thought is, do I want to go through all this just to see if it works on a dead OS.

I will only report back here if I get XP functional.    lots-o-coffee

RE: Software options?
Well, I got a PC that hasn't fired up since 2012 up and running using XP Pro/Sp3. Boy!, I forgot about XP's Fisher-Price graphic frontend. Now on to my results.
OSCAR is a no-go. My system didn't even recognize it a legitimate Win32 app. The only thing I could get going was SleepyHead 1.0.0-Beta-2-snapshot, circa 2016. It hollered about a DLL, so I'm not certain it will actually work.

In retrospect, I would recommend that you install a 32bit version of Linux and use the i386 Debian version of OSCAR.

Oh! I was hoping to retire my circa 2003 ex-XP now Debian 9 system...

I guess I need to work on getting KVM up and running.

Never thought we'd come to the day when installing Windows XP was more difficult than installing the latest Ubuntu OS.  But alas, we're there right now.

I didn't realize how spoiled I've become. This reminds me of the ad of two young boys watching TV and talking about the "old" days and one saying, "I remember when you had to rewind the DVD." Big Grin

That's nothing.  I remember the days when DVDs were much bigger and only played songs-- and you had to carefully place the DVD reading arm onto the disk to play it.

I can remember when you had to wait for things we called 'tubes' to glow and get hot before you could hear anything at all...

A coupe of those had '45' etched into the surface, a couple had '56'... and I think there was one with '80' on it...
