Does ArtRage 4.5 Support Windows XP?
No. Unfortunately, Windows XP support had to be dropped in the 4.5 update, as it was not capable of supporting certain upgraded features. ArtRage 4.5 supports Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10 (as well as Mac OS 10.6 and later).
Microsoft provided support for Windows XP for the past 12 years. However, as of April 8, 2014, support and updates for Windows XP are no longer available. Accordingly later hardware/software features also become unsupported that is used in ArtRage 4.5, however we will still provide you with a different copy that will work with Windows XP due to this reason.
We have a download of the last supported version, ArtRage 4.0.6, available in the Member Area.
If you own an ArtRage 4.5 licence, you can register the serial there and choose to download the older version instead. You are then also able to download ArtRage 4.5, if you upgrade to a supported Operating System (such as Windows 7, 8/8.1, or 10).
This option will also be available for Steam users through Steam.
