Duplicati 2.0 no longer compatible with Windows XP #1310
Since the 2.0 version requires .NET 4.5 it is not compatible with windows XP (see http://blogs.msdn.com/b/dotnet/p/dotnet45xp.aspx ).
I know that XP is old and no longer maintained by Microsoft. Therefore I do NOT request to make it compatible with it XP. I just request to:
a) State clearly on the duplicati Homepage (i.e., here: http://www.duplicati.com/howtos/how-to-install-and-run-duplicati-2-0-preview ) that it requires Vista or higher.
b) Provide a better error when running the program under XP. One that just openly says that i will not work. (Right now one gets a message that .NET 4 is required, after this is installed it requests for 4.03, and after this is installed it requests for 4.5 which is not available for XP)
@kenkendk I'm just looking at this again to see if there were updates - I haven't tried Mono, how would I run the app using Mono? Is it just a case on installing and running the TrayIcon.exe file and the app uses Mono automatically, or is there more to it? Thanks.
Actually I just tried installing Mono. I had to run the installer update for XP from https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=8483. Then I ran the MSI from http://www.mono-project.com/download/#download-win and tried both with and without the GTK# install from that link too. Still tells me to update .NET to version 4.5 when I run the Duplicati.GUI.TrayIcon.exe.
I've also tried removing the Duplicati.GUI.TrayIcon.exe.config file as it appears to set requirements for .NET usage, the TrayIcon.exe program crashes then instead. So perhaps there is a .config file alteration that I need?
