Legacy support seems to have vanished.

   I'm using windows XP 32-bit for software compatibility reasons too irritating to recount, but also, avoiding bloatware, etc. (This system actually is 64-bit, and dual-boots to Linux Mint as well) So, via https://patchmypc.com/home-updater (as suggested in the Feb. 2023 issue of APC magazine) I thought to try "For Windows XP, you can download a legacy support version that uses Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 here: https://patchmypc.com/freeupdater/PatchMyPCLegacySupport.exe " as the system does indeed have .NET 3.5...
   But this leads to 404 Page not found.

   I can of course chug along with manual updates (where still available for XP) but the hope was to have the petty details attended to automatically. Oh well.
   Is there some place where the old version can be found, or is it now banished?

Hi Nicky,

Thanks for reaching out. We don't plan to support the legacy build anymore for Windows XP. I apologize for the inconvenience.


Ah well. So, an old version that works on XP is no longer to be found?
