Why does WhatPulse does not load/auth/connnect on XP

Sad Why does WhatPulse does not load/auth/connnect on XP
Greetings, I've recently got a computer that i decided to downgrade to XP for reasons.

However, i've recently noticed that the lastest version of WP doesn't work due to a API that was introduced in Vista (hense why i'm able to use whatpulse on vista in 2020), i tried to downgrade to 2.8.1 however it seems that connections are blocked (it says servers are down)?

It'll be unlikely for me to upgrade the computer to Vista/7/8.1/10, as that may put the computer into struggle.
Thank you.

edit: remove emoticons, as for some reason, that didn't work.

RE: Why does WhatPulse does not load/auth/connnect on XP
Did you think about installing linux? Windows XP is outdated for years now and it’ll easily be infected by a virus when connected to the internet. Linux, for example Lubuntu, installs just as easy as windows, and works the same way as windows regarding web surfing, email writing, watching videos, working on documents etc. It’s free, and a recent linux is faster than Windows XP and more secure than Windows 10. You might want to give it a try Smile

RE: Why does WhatPulse does not load/auth/connnect on XP
I'm not a good Linux user. I installed Mint once and ditched it as WhatPulse installation instructions is too hard for me on Linux (it was on my aspire)

Also, regarding the "it’ll easily be infected by a virus when connected to the internet" part, i am not the person who clicks download on everything.

RE: Why does WhatPulse does not load/auth/connnect on XP
Haven't got any replies other than a vague "install linux" message.

I used ubuntu sometime in 2018 and it was lame, it felt "off" to me and i really only used it to navigate the web with firefox, as the linux alternatives to the windows apps i use were ethier lamer, or had a steep learning curve, wine barely worked with most applications other than flash 8. and later in late-2019, as i already mentioned, i tried to install whatpulse on mint and it didn't worked or instructions were too confusing. i hope a patched-for-xp version of WP 2.8.4 comes out one day...
