Wusescore on Windows XP

• Jan 13, 2020 - 15:47

Hello. I needed to install Musescore on a Windows XP. I went from this computer to the download section, where I was asked to download version 2.3.2. However, this program does not start. Tell me, please, is it possible to install Musescore on Windows XP and how?


MuseScore 2.3.2 should run on Windows XP. But neither is supported any longer.

The last version I had running on Windows XP was 2.0.1, after that I switched to Windows 7 (and I'm currently in the process of switching to Windows 10, as Windows 7 goes out of support this week)

Yes, as without support there are no security fixes and without those connecting such a computer to the internet is way too dangarous. Also MuseScore 3 won't run on Windows XP.
Windows 8.1 is still supported (for another 3 years), but I have a strong dislike for it. Maybe 8.1 is better, but 8 was a horrible mess (as, traditionally, is every 2nd OS Microsoft puts out, 95, ME, Vista, 8, vs. 3.11, 98, 2000, XP, 7 and 10)
