Won't load on WinXP: DecodePointer

Cheers all,

I just downloaded Scrivener, but it won’t run on my Windows XP machine. The installation seems to work fine, but when I then try to start the program it gives an error:

I’m afraid that’s rather Greek to me. After that nothing happens. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

What service pack is WINXP using ? You should be on Service Pack 3
if you’re on SP2 or earlier, it causes problems with newer programs
In fact, you can’t download the latest updates for that system from MS until you download Service Pack 3 first.

That was it. Thank you!

Glad that worked out
Sometimes I get an issue and have to go to endless sites before I find one that works
