testers wanted for windows xp, 7 and 8
« on: 09:18, 24 December 15 »
I would like some help to test the installer I made for arnold emulator to see if it works on windows xp, windows 7 or windows 8. (The installer and emulator in this version are 32-bit). I have windows 10 64-bit.

I have confirmation it works on another windows 10 64-bit system :)

So if you have an older version of windows please contact me via pm and I will give you the download link.

At this time the testing is more minimal (but if you wish to try it out more that is fine):
- check the installer runs and the program is installed
- check the program can be launched without errors
- check that the window shows up and can be interacted with
- check that the program can be uninstalled ok.

The installer is not signed so you will get a warning. Smartscreen may attempt to block it, so you may need to give it permission. Feel free to virus scan it etc..

I have used an installer because windows 10 is more keen on security.
