Re: Application installer aborts due to Windows version WinXP; fix possible?

Acridity? I was referring to the irony. Been seeing a wee bit too much of it lately, not ever making anything better under any context, and imo, people living in the world in its current state are not in need of more of it.

Hello good people, I'll start with apologizing up front in case this question has already been answered. I would have expected it to be, but searching didn't turn up anything really useful (although I just may no be thinking of the right terms...). Here goes: I'm trying to install an application in ...
