Problem running on XP

Recommended Posts

While I do have a computer that will run OpenRCT, my XP machine, ironically enough, has better specs, and I thought I'd give it a go. I recently downloaded the most recent 32 bit installer (not the launcher) and attempted to install and run OpenRCT on Windows XP SP2. After installation (which went just fine), I get a critical stop error when attempting to run the application, stating that OpenRCT is not a 32 bit program.

Is there some trickery I can try to get this to run, or am I out of luck on this?

OpenRCT2 does not support windows XP anymore. You need to download version 0.0.3 for that to work.

Okay, I'll give that a go, then.

Windows XP is becoming a more vulnerable system by the day. You should definitely consider upgrading to an OS that is being maintained.

This is not my workhorse machine, but rather a 'childhood fantasy come to life' retro gaming rig designed specifically to run XP. I am aware of the risks, and I don't have any personal or important data on it. I do appreciate your concern, however.


Thank you both for your helpful and timely replies!
