I have a PC Dual Core with 4 GB ram. Which version can i install? It must be near the latest and support Windows XP. Please have a link to download. I tried with the lower version 2.75 & 2.76. I have installed with giving error and when i want to uninstall its giving error

The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. this may indicate a problem with the package. The error code is 2753.

How can i proceed. Im stuck in the way.

  • $\begingroup$ Windows XP support ended a few versions ago,not sure exactly which. Try older builds and use the zipped versions, not intallers $\endgroup$ Nov 11, 2016 at 15:18

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, for every new version you would have to manually reinstall your addons unfortunately $\endgroup$ Nov 11, 2016 at 19:29

    $\begingroup$ could you please stop using "fancy" abbreviations, like "u" instead of "you" and "plz" instead of "please"? BlenderSE is not 4chan or something like that. We're all about quality content here and "cool stuff" might actually be hard to understand for non-native readers (which I consider my self) with less experience in English. Thanks. $\endgroup$ Nov 11, 2016 at 19:07
