Android studio Android studio xwb (Programmer) (OP) 7 Dec 14 15:33 I haven't got an XP machine with the minimum requirements but I find it strange that https://developer.android.com/sdk/installing/studi... says that Android studio will run on Windows 2003 but not non XP. Isn't Windows 2003 just the server version of Windows XP? 2003 and XP64 are both 5.2 and XP32 is 5.1. RE: Android studio dilettante (MIS) 10 Dec 14 10:03 The primary distinction here is that Windows XP is now completely unsupported and considered unsafe to be connected to the Internet at all, while Server 2003 is still on extended support and receiving security patches until July 2015. Google does not promote the use of unsupported versions of Windows.
