Xamarin Studio crash when starting on Windows XP.
I did some research. I think this is because the new version of gtk 2.12.25 don't work correctly on XP.
I tested with another GTK# application. If i install gtk# 2.12.21, applications work, if i install 2.12.25 application crash like Xamarin Studio, but Xamarin Studio don't install with 2.12.21.
Maybe the problem can be fixed in gtk, but that falls out of the scope of Xamarin Studio. In any case, we are dropping support for XP.
Andrey, this may help you: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=17740
@Lluis, I thought we needed to do some update/installer fixup before officially dropping XP support?
Michael, yes, we need to do some installer work.
