Whee! We now cover all common Windows versions: Windows 7, Windows 8, and XP.

NOTE: THERE IS A SEPARATE INSTALL FOR XP. It is HERE.

If you’re on Windows 7/8, you go HERE.

The MeowBit for XP is a hard fork. We will do tech support for it on our forum, but will not be updating it as often as we update the Windows 7/8 version. We just did a lot of work making an XP version due to user requests. We’ve tested it and it works well on our end.

INSTALLING THE XP VERSION: You will still need the updated Namecoin wallet, and should read the install info for the main version of MeowBit, HERE. It’s mostly the same info, except for this:

Special Information for Meow Bit for Windows XP
IMPORTANT: MeowBit requires upgrades for the .Net Framework which is not included in this installer.

Most people probably won’t need the update. If you’ve updated Windows XP in the last year, MeowBit should work fine out of the box.

If MeowBit crashes shortly after start-up, it is because these updates are not installed on your system.

The preferred method of obtaining these updates is to use Windows Update on your start menu and Install all Optional Updates for .Net 4.0
Alternatively, the Update 4.0.3 for Microsoft .NET Framework 4, available here:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29053
contains the updates needed to run MeowBit on Windows XP.
