Win xp here. 

I clicked on the blue link "Change Systems" and it went to a page with the same URL, but it then showed xp as supported in the "System Requirements" section.

It offered to download Windows-KB890830-V5.39.exe, but Windows-KB890830-V5.39.exe will not download.  The file that will download is Windows-KB890830-V5.40.exe and it will not run on xp here. 

 

Had a bad moment there, thought the mind had finally gone. So I backtracked and cobbled together this picture. 

 

Doesn't really matter, Hazelnut said it all more concisely, but it's nice to know I am not yet round the bend.  :lol:

That's the page I tried to get it from also from login123's screenshot.

 

I had thought they were going to keep issuing it for XP until 2018, I think I read that somewhere.
