This release SHOULD fix https://bugs.launchpad.net/zim/+bug/923679 "Zim 0.54 doesn't work on Windows XP". The problem was that Py2exe was not including required msvcr90.dll in the build output.
My fix to the build script and build instructions are attached to this ticket and a merge request was sent to Jaap. You can download the fresh 0.56 Windows build from my web site. I have tested both the Desktop and Portable builds on a bare minimum Windows XP SP3 virtual machine -- no VM hardware drivers; no Windows Updates performed; only Portable FileZilla installed. As it works on this VM, I hope it will work for you.
