Apparently you are using Windows 8.0, rather than Windows 8.1.

Window 8.0 has reached end of life in 2016, i.e. 5 years ago. Just update to Windows 8.1, which is essentially a Service Pack to Windows 8 and will be supported with security fixes by Microsoft until 2023.

At this point, I won't put any effort into testing or supporting Windows 8.0. The same applies to Windows 7 without SP-1, or Windows XP without SP-3.

(BTW: Please don't post ultra-large screenshots as attachments. It breaks the layout.)

Is There a Difference Between 8 and 8.1?

The answer is no, not really. Windows 8.1 is considered a service pack for Windows 8. This means Windows 8.1 is a part of Windows 8 and is included in that life cycle.

8.0 is better than 7 and 8.1 in various ways. It has a better DWM than 7, but without the activation system of 8.1. It can be easily modded to use the 7 explorer, while 8.1 has buggy start menu replacements. It has the better performance of 8.x without the telemetry updates of 8.1.

Also, about support, 8.0 Embedded gets support until 2023 as well, and 8.0 embedded updates work on regular 8.0.

Fell free to use whatever outdated and end-of-live operating system you like – it is you who has to live with the implications. I could go on to elaborate on how irresponsibly it is to use an end-of-live operating system. But I know that trying to "proselytize" notorious update refusers is a totally pointless endeavor. So, do what you want, but do not expect software developers to care about such super-exotic configuration. Windows 8.x generally is a lost cause, because it never gained much popularity and was quickly superseded by Windows 10. But Windows 8.0 without the Windows 8.1 service pack in particular is such a niche configuration that it's not worth bothering...

(BTW: You are the first person to ever try running this software on Windows 8.0, and report back. I think that says it all.)

Latest nightly build LameXP-RC10.2021-06-27.Release-Static.Build-2316 seems to be broken on extraction of the file wvunpack.exe

Extracting file: wvunpack.x64-avx.exe -> wvunpack.exe
Failedto open file on first attempt, retrying...
QFile::remove: Empty or null file name
BaseTask exception error:
File 'lxp_curl.exe' could not be locked

GURU MEDITATION !!! <- (NICE! :-D AMIGA throwback?? lol )

Probably yet another case of "anti-virus" software gone nuts

If you run any "anti-virus" software, please turn it off (or, even better: uninstall) in order to confirm that the root cause of the problem indeed is a buggy "anti-virus" software. Then report the problem to then vendor.

(Should the problem persist after any "anti-virus" software has been eradicated from the system, then I may investigate further)
