The solution to running Calibre 2.x under XP is to run the Windows 8.1 comparability check from Microsoft and if the computer is compatible, backup the system drive, install a 64-bit Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 in place of XP. But you will have to install your programs and configure your system all over again.

But in the end, it's worth is a you won't be stuck trying to run things that won't run or won't run well enough. Sigil and Calibre are two programs that do run better with Windows 7 or 8.1. It's never going to get better. It's only going to get worse.

XP IS DEAD! Time to move on even if that means having to buy a new computer or upgrade the one you have.
