LDS Tools for Windows XP

Postby dwightpc » Wed Jan 20, 2016 7:46 am

Sounds like you are working with Microsoft to force me to upgrade to Windows 10, which I refuse to do. I need this APP on my PC along with Gospel Library.

The church has not produced apps for the desktop in decades. They are producing apps for phones and tablets. The fact that some desktops run the same OS as tablets is a bonus for them.

LDS Tools and Gospel Library won't run on Windows 7 either - and it's still a current OS. So it's not coming to a discontinued OS like WinXP.

One option that would work on Windows XP (or at least used to -- I haven't tried it in quite a while) is to use an Android emulator such as BlueStacks, and then use the Android version of Gospel Library.

The Windows version of Gospel Library won't work on Windows XP, not because the developers have anything against Windows XP, but because the application framework they're using to develop the Windows mobile apps wasn't created by Microsoft until Windows 8.
