Just an idea I can't really flesh out right now since I'm not using Windows XP on a daily basis.

Given that it is quite common to see "XP compatibility dropped" in lots of programs changelogs, I think it would be useful to have a list XP compatible software (from TPFC and elsewhere).

So feel free to add you suggestions/links to this topic... :)

According to smaragdus (https://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2787#comment28886), ClipDiary v3.9 is the last XP compatible version.

Furthermore, all of the popular top 20 TPFC entries support XP (marked with '' below; HWinfo status undeclared).

PortableApps.com entries notify people of when an OS becomes incompatible

I have made a list of their software which requires Vista or higher. The 2 without version numbers is because there was no xp support in PA format at the time of release

AquaSnap v1.18.2
Avidemux
Blender v2.76b
DB Browser For SQLite v3.9.0
FileZilla v3.9.0.2
Google Chrome 50
gPodder v3.9.2
HexChat
Kitty v0.67.3.2
Marble v1.9.1
Mnemosyne v2.3.6
Sigil v0.8.0
Stellarium v0.14.0

Yes that is correct. I took the information from the entries on the PA website but was lazy to research the previous version which still supports xp

So i have done some research for the ones that do support xp

AquaSnap v1.17.1
Avidemux v2.6.10 (No PA format)
Blender v2.76
DB Browser For SQLite v3.4.0
FileZilla v3.9.0.1
Google Chrome 49
gPodder v3.9.1
HexChat v2.9.4 (No PA format)
KiTTY v0.67.3.1
Marble v1.9.0
Mnemosyne v2.3.5
Sigil v0.7.4
Stellarium v0.13.3
