  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

We don't have plans to make CCL work on pre-Windows XP systems. I updated the documentation and Trac page to make this explicit.

I suppose that funding (or user-contributed patches) could change those plans, but otherwise, the probably considerable effort to implement exception handling without AddVectoredExceptionHandler?() doesn't seem worthwhile.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
