  • "target XP" means that you can build applications that run on XP (C++ apps or .NET apps that target .NET 2/3/4 but not 4.5). VS itself cannot run on XP.

  • Hi Gururaj,

    target winXP means you can create application using VS2012 (not on XP) and that application can run on XP machine.

  • Neither .NET 4.5 nor VS2012 are supported on XP. .NET 4.5 requires Vista or higher and VS2012 requires Win7 or higher.

  • Hi Mike,

    Thanks for the message,

    In the MSDN they mentioned that VS2012 will target winXP. So just wanted to know if it is possible to have setup to run it using Windows XP machine

    Regards,

    Thanks again for helping,
