I don't know if it will run on Win XP. I know it won't build on WinXP.

Today's nightlies are also missing libboost_filesystem-mt because I didn't push the fix for that until just now. I started another release build--this one should show up in releases if it builds through OK--that you can try out. If it works it should be up in an hour or so. I expect that it will crash in webkit just like the one I built last night on my local VM.

Unfortunately I won't have much time to work on it today, and I need to spend time this week getting 2.6.18 ready to release as I won't have much time at the weekend.
