I compiled the "template_windows_vs2015" project and moved the compiled EXE to a Windows XP VirtualBox VM. When I try to run the EXE, I get:
"This application has failed to start because MFPlat.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem."
The DirectX SDK June 2010 is installed.
Running a tier 1 application succeeds, but crashes on exit (The instruction at "0x07c90100b" referenced memory at "0x00001078". The memory could not be "read".) I remember that this crash on exit with XP issue has been around for awhile.
Has XP been officially dropped by AppGameKit? It would make sense to do so, but haven't seen anything indicating that AppGameKit games shouldn't be able to run on XP.
