well I don't think they will stop anyone using xp eventually no updates for it anymore thats all. I'd like to get win7 eventually but upgrading jaws and hal when I don't use it etc I don't even use xp to its fullest.
And I like xp.
I have no need right now.
and unless things change in 10 years or so I probably still won't.
Sertainly I will have a home system in xp I don
't need all that swanky new hardware.

If they stop me using xp, I'll simply have to use ubuntu. I'm not paying that price for windows 7.

You can download the c++ runtimes, which are standard libraries that are used when you use visual studio 2008 or 2005 to compile your code. As xp was released before that you need to download the updates. They are not considered standard system requirements, because most windows systems have them installed. Putting them on his websight as a requirement is kind of like Thomas telling you you need drivers for your soundcard so the soundcard can work. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Damien Pendleton" <dam...@x-sight-interactive.net>

Hi Thomas,
I stopped using the Windows Update service since I have heard some awful things about it, for example purposefully putting bugs in so-called fixes to desuade people from using XP. Don't know how true it is but the information did come from somebody who is computer literate.
Regards,
Damien.
