Simile 6.2 and Windows XP

I used to install the Evaluation version in our student classrooms on computers with Windows XP. Last year it was OK with v6.0 but Simile v6.2 Evaluation now quits when launching after displaying a long and obscure error message...

Is the new version still compatible with Windows XP? If not, can you provide me with a compatible version? If yes, what van we do to fix the problem?

Thanks for your quick answer.

Your colleague Laurence alerted me to this problem last week. It was due to some versions of Simile's build tools dropping compatibility to XP, and I have just uploaded a new version for 32-bit Windows that fixes it. So you should be able to install in your classroom if you download it again now.
We still support Windows XP even though Microsoft does not!
