XP Compatibility Page

This page is all about hardware and software that is compatible with Windows XP. All downloads coming from me are signed with my PGP certificate, which is available here.

opus-tools 0.2 (Opus 1.3)

Description: The latest version of opus-tools no longer works on Windows XP so I acquired the source code and built it with XP support by right-clicking the Visual Studio projects and choosing to use an XP-compatible compiler.
Build Date: April 2, 2019
Tested on: Windows XP (32 and 64-bit), Windows 7 (64-bit)
Known Limitations: None
Download link: opustools-0.2(opus-1.3)_winxp.7z
PGP Signature: opustools-0.2(opus-1.3)_winxp.7z.sig

OpenSSL 1.1.1j

Description: The OpenSSL application and libraries compiled with -D_WIN32_WINNT=[0x0501/0x0502] so it will work on Windows XP. Without this option, bcrypt.dll and a lot of other DLL's not found on Windows XP would be required.
Build Date: March 21, 2021
Known Limitations: Some tests failed on the 32-bit builds. Details are in "test_results.txt"
Extra notes: ZLIB_WINAPI was disabled to fix a linker issue

Epson ET-2750

Description: The 32-bit Windows 7 drivers and scanner utility from Epson work on Windows XP.
Go to Epson's driver page for the ET-2750. For Operating System, choose "Windows 7 (32-bit)". Skip the section "Recommended For You" since this doesn't work on XP. Instead, expand the "Drivers" section and download "Printer Driver v[x.xx]" and "Scanner Driver and Epson Scan 2 Utility v[x.x.x.x]". Run them both and the installation will proceed normally.
Test date: April 2, 2019
Tested version: v2.67 (printer), v6.4.0.0 (scanner and scanner utility)
Tested on: Windows XP (32-bit)
