Windows xp support

I have winxp on my computer, and I wanna write win10 ISO on my usb, but etcher says:
windows 7 required
How to solve it?

Sorry, but there is no solving the system requirements. Windows XP support has long been discontinued, and the technology on-top of which Etcher is built is incompatible with it.
The only solution would be to upgrade your operating system.

see if any listed here help

I use Etcher on Win7 which is WinXP and do not have any problems. I am writing Raspbian software to a varity of microSD cards without fail. Etcher software versions used are 1.4.4 and 1.4.8.

  • what? Win7 is not WinXP. They’re two completely different operating systems.

Hi everyone

Unfortunately, balena Etcher does not support Windows XP at all, the minimum windows version is Windows 7.

Kind regards

I apologize for confusing Win 7 and Win XP as the same product. Sometimes but not often, the fingers finish typing before the brain is fully engaged.
