MuseScore 3.0.2 won't open/run

• Feb 5, 2019 - 05:24

Long time MuseScore user, using version on a Windows XP SP3 OS. Decided to try and upgrade to a newer version of MuseScore 3.0.2. Downloaded the installer file, which shows up in my folder as Musescore 3.0.1 32 bit installer. I execute this file, and the installation program terminates normally, with a MuseScore 3 icon on the desktop. When I try to run the program, however, I get the error message "C:\Program Files\MuseScore 3\bin\MuseScore3.exe is not a valid Win32 application" Any ideas?


BTW: The MuseScore3 file in the \bin\ file has a creation date of 01/20/2019 at 2:04 a.m. and a size of 21.3 MB (22,367,744 bytes).

Having done a bit more research, it seems XP users still have no choice but to use 2.3.2. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
