Windows XP?
Will the game work with Windows xp? It says that Windows Vista is the minimum requirement, so I'm not sure.

The game requires Directx 10, an API that is only supported by Vista and upwards. So sadly no. :/

Sadly No, XP only supports up to directx 9, but XP is such an old OS already, if you want to keep playing new upcoming games I think it's time for people to let go of XP so we can move forward, I myself am using windows 8 now, and it works just fine with new games, although you might prefer win 7 since it's cheaper now and supports directx up to 11

7 is cheaper? Are you sure? You can get Win8 for very cheap if you peruse the Upgrade Offer[www.windowsupgradeoffer.com]. It's about 15$ for a fully working OS.

And yes, the new UI is not quite good but it is completely possible to avoid it entirely after some customizations. After all you were going to customize your new OS anyway, just do this once and you can forget about new UI if you want to.

Technically, Win8 is just Windows 6.2 when 7 is 6.1, so almost everything compatible with win7/vista(6.0) is compatible with Win8. And the new explorer and taskmanager additions in win8 rock. Oh and multiple monitor taskbars that you can set to show only those windows that are open on that monitor are kinda cool.

And let's not overlook the fact that even though I installed it a few months ago it still boots up incredibly fast (when it's not busy updating itself, eugh, but that's microsoft in general).

i saw a fourm where i could rename a dll file for xcom to work. i did that and xcom worked. i was wondering if i could do that right now and if i could what dll file to rename

interested if there is a work around for this like sub suggests exists for x com?
Tensix Apr 2, 2013 @ 4:31am 
The reason why XCom had a workaround is because the required features from Windows 7 were all file system functions that could be patched into XP. XCom chose not to make use of that for whatever reason, so the dll in question fixed that. Bioshock Infinite requires a newer DirectX than is (or ever will be) available for XP, which doesn't have a workaround. Unfortunate, since I don't have Win7 either, but don't hold out for a patch because there's almost certainly never going to be one.

Please don't start this. I use 8 on my work PC and home PC and it has been nothing but flawless and both machines are fully booted from a cold start in less than 15 seconds.

It's actually okay to update your OS now. Windows 98 will never come out again.

GEt W7, it is similar to XP in many ways, and it is an overall polished OS.

I'm in the same boat. Stuck on XP and just got this gifted to me. Sadface all around.
