Now which bit of XP is End of Life do people not understand ? .. and trying to run 10 year old software on 10 year old hardware using internet explorer 8 .. Good luck.
IMHO – about all Windows XP is good for is a/ an OS for POS terminals and b/ for retro gamers and console. How to test for it ? start/run/winver Oh BTW. windows XP was first released Aug 2001, and ‘Internet Explorer 8’ was released March 2009.
Happy to discuss your upgrade path.. understood … any questions .. let me know.
