Just finished installing the RPG Maker MV trial, doing trial to test it before I commit to buying it and/or transfering my VX Ace project to it. I haven't had the touch to even mess around with the program yet because when I click to open the file, I get a message saying it is not a valid Win32 application.



I'm using my grandma's computer while mine is in the shop. Not sure if this has anything to do with it, but my grandma's computer is Windows XP.

That's because it's a win64 application :p

XP can't run 64-bit programs.

EDIT: I stand corrected!

XP is, unfortunately, no longer a supported OS. You'll have to get to a computer that uses Vista or above in order to get it to work, unfortunately :/

It's quite a 32-bit program.

Wow, I think this is the first software I've purchased that doesn't support XP.

Well MS themselves, no longer supports XP.

Awhile back, I had to reformat my HD, but MS wouldn't update XP, so I ended up just sucking it up, and buying windows 7(64bit premium version at that, so hopefully I wont have to deal with crap like that, for a long time)

They can pry it from my cold, dead hands.

Millions of people still used Windows 98 SE years after 'date', too (though most of those have since switched to XP). You'd be surprised how many businesses haven't switched yet. XP was where Microsoft reached "good enough" for like 99% of computer users.

It's not my computer so I can't upgrade it. I'll have to wait then.

Not surprised, Trove (an MMO I played on my busted computer) doesn't support XP either.

I can't imagine going back to XP now. W7 is really good.

Try to reinstall it, you can also try using Steam. Reboot your computer. Windows XP is really outdated, it doesn't have as good as services as the newer Windows, everything is really outdated in general. I really think should upgrade to be honest.

Hi, I'm trying to use the Orange Mapshot plugin on Mac, but it isn't working. Could you assist? I'm attempting to do Parallax Mapping. Thanks.
I can't believe my dlc flopped that hard. It's depressing. I'm a fricking failure at being a musician.
