Could not install Sync client onto WinXP


I am trying to find DropBox replacement as they announced end of support for WinXP. Odrive Sync states it requires at least WinXP, IE7 and WMP 9. I tried to install it using odrivesync.5302.exe (previously was also trying odrivesync.5203.exe) and got a trouble with reference to the log. Ok, it seems it also requires Net4.0. Went to MS, downloaded it and installed complete Net4.0. But the installation program keeps complaining. It asks for Win version of 6.1, which is Win7 according to en wikipedia. but I need to install it on WinXP, that is 5.1. Where do I get installation file supporting the WinXP, which is described as supported system within website, please?


P.S. Here is complete transcription of the log file:

Apologies for the confusion, but odrive does not support Windows XP anymore. We actually haven’t for a while. It become too difficult for us to move the product forward while trying to maintain backwards compatibility with an OS that is not longer supported by the developer (Microsoft, in this case).

Can you tell me where you saw that WinXP is listed as the minimum requirement?



Oops, seems like I got two sources of this confusion. First I got a tip from our local Czech IT webzine (, where an article on Dropbox end of support was published and odrive mentioned/offered as a replacement. Furthermore I seem to have confused overdrive and odrive, as the page with bullet points I quite remember I have seen belongs presumably to overdrive. Clearly my and zive’s fault and not yours.

What a shame. And thanks for the reply.



No worries. Once you move off of Windows XP in the future I hope you will come back to odrive. :slight_smile:

And the same is true of Server 2003 R2, unfortunately.

Honza, have you come up with any alternatives in the last month?
