Unofficial Sigil Windows XP Builds

Alternative Windows Sigil Builds

I've been able to use this build of Sigil on Windows XP. It will have to be XP w/SP3, though--nothing less will suffice. Processors must support SSE2. No guarantees this will work for you, though. The latest (v0.9.1) was compiled with Visual Studio 2013 using a custom compiled version of Qt5.4.1 targeting XP and disabling ssl. The WMF backend was disabled to force Qt to use DirectShow for audio/video. Also using the third-party Angle implementation of OpenGL as it allows hardware decoding of video. You're on your own about what video/audio codecs will work where.

Sigil v0.9.1 for XP SP3 (sse2)

Please don't use the official Sigil channels to report bugs if you're using this version. This is an unsupported/unofficial version of Sigil. You may mention issues here and I'll see what I can do, though.

The sha256 checksum for the installer is attached to this post. Please use it to verify that you're downloading the file I uploaded.

I have found the same but will report any problems I find.

Thanks Diap for your work.

But it doesn't drive around machine shortcomings does it? Is it possible to make a quick test to see if SSE? is missing, so people might know if it will work?

No it doesn't. But if their processor doesn't have SSE2, they've frankly been done with Sigil since before 0.7.x.x anyway. I believe even 0.6.x had to be tweaked and custom compiled to get around SSE2 shortcomings ... then something in Qt5 made it all but impossible to work without SSE2.

I'm not interested in trying to incorporate machine tests into the installer. If you have XP SP3 and the 0.7.x versions of Sigil worked for you in the past, there's a good chance this version of 0.8.0 will work as well. If the 7 series of Sigil didn't work on your machine, this build isn't going to do any new magic.

That is a very clear statement of the chances which should make a pretty good rule of thumb for those in this situation.

A very big thank you from me also

Installed on XP SP3 and a quick check it seems to be fine. Now to see if I can get the plugins working.

This will check your hardware to see if your pc can run windows 7, if it passed then the then most-likely you will have no problems with sigil with QT5.

If your system supports SSE2 and you have XP SP3, then you should be OK to run Sigil v0.8.0. otherwise, forget it.

Clarification: IF all that is true, you should be OK to run THIS PARTICULAR unofficially compiled package of v0.8.0... the one linked to in THIS thread (first post). The official Sigil v0.8.0 package will not run on Windows XP ... period. At all. As in nope... not happening. No matter whatchagot under the hood.

Thank you for the clarification. Oh and one more bit of clarification. If your computer's processor is up to running Windows 8.1, get the heck off of XP.

Is it perfect for your needs if you cannot run programs you want to run?
