Visual studio community not a valid file


i downloaded community version of visual studio

but it says its not a valid win32 file

see screenshot

does visual studio installs on window xp or not ??

i also tried to install vs code

but it also doesnt installs on window xp ??

is there any other software to write and compile c program on windows xp


At the bottom of that page it lists Windows versions 7, 8 and 10.
So I presume Vista and XP may not be supported.

Hi there vinpkl,

perhaps this may help…

Configuring Programs for Windows XP

Also note that it appears that you need Visual Studio 2012 with Update 4 .
