Don’t waste your time to download if you have XP. It refuses to even install or allow you to test or try it on XP. Bye.

If you are running a 15 year old OS it is unrealistic to expect it to handle brand new software.

You really need to think about moving on. A $350 laptop would give you a huge capability boost from what you are running now. I can’t blame you for wanting to avoid Win 10 but you can install Ubuntu Linux for an upgrade without Microsoft’s snoop ware and be able to use more modern software.

If you have a good computer repair store in your town, you can get a desktop/lapper and have them remove Win-10, and install an OEM copy of Win-7, for about $90-120. They have the CDs. They can move your XP stuff over to the new unit, but you will probably have to get drivers for some of it. There are plenty of sites for that.
