I am not on a Windows XP system yet I hate when developers drop support for Windows XP. As far as I know the last version of Rainmeter which supports Windows XP is

4.0 (r2746)

FYI: updated link.. previously linked to v2.4.

@ All
All i needed additionally are:
1. msvcp110.dll
2. msvcr110.dll

im not sure if it's just my system.. but i recommend starting with those 2 and if more DLLs are required.. Rainmeter will alert you.

Updated post w/ new dependencies from my computer to ensure cleanliness.

2.5 Final (r1842)

Thanks a lot @Magibon. The provided dependencies worked on Win7x64/Feb2013. As a note, I had to reinstall in portable mode and move skins and rainmeter.ini to the new instalation folder in order to make it work; copying dependencies to my original portable installation keept it failing. Thanks again.

Rainmeter v2.5 now requires MSVCP110 series of DLLs :(

The last version that does not require the 110 series:

You can then use the DLLs provided here, or the MediaFire links.

The solution for missing DLL´s on XP (dunno other versions) is install the non portable version , uninstall it then install the portable option. Worked like a charm.

Another swing and a miss! I tried the previous version, and now this updated version, and the MSVCP100.dll problem still exists. It won't run as a portable. I tried the fixes from the Rainmeter website and from older posts above...still no luck on XP, 7, and 8RP. (For the fun of it, I did a full install of Rainmeter on 8RP and it runs great.)
