Does SR support Win XP 32?

The game doesn't start and shows the next message "The procedure entry point GetTickCount64 could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll"
As I can understand the engine asks for some functions that don't exist in Windows XP x86...

As I noticed I'm not the only one with such an error - the same bug is reported at the main download page http://sourceforge.net/projects/stuntrally/

Actually, i couldn't find an answer here neither in issues or in the game's wiki (only that the game wasn't tested on other windows OS than win7). may be searched not very attentively :(

upd: may be this trouble refers to lthe atest OGRE version? and some older SR releases based on an older engine can work properly?

Found an answer myself after installing an older 2.1 version of the game - it seems to be based on ogre 1.8 - and it works on XP, as expected...

Does it mean all the newer releases based on ogre 1.9 will not work ? or where can I get any info about the last release based on ogre 1.8?

Well no. SR doesn't support Win XP, since few versions. Just because of what you wrote.
(I build OGRE from 1.10 sources on Win 7 using 32bit VS, and happened to be so).
And Win XP itself isn't supported since april 2014, info.
I won't be changing this.

Understood
Using of Win Xp is my own problem that can't be helped and it's not a question to discuss here, of course.

Now the only thing I wont to know is the latest SR release to run on XP. Or is 2.1 the latest?
I desided to test that one after having compared ogre release with SR release dates ;)

OK, I just checked and ver 2.2.1 is the last one to run on XP (and use Ogre 1.8.1, has same dll's as in 2.1).
I added that info to Install wiki.
