Default Draftsight Does Not Download

I am trying to download the free 2018 2D version of Draftsight to my 32 bit desktop with Windows XP. The download terminates with a window that states it can not be done at this time and to try again later. Any ideas as to what is wrong? Thanks, Dan.

Says right on their web page it's unsupported on Windows XP and Vista. RTFM.

Might want to send an email to support, they probably can supply you with a version that supports XP. Attached screenshot shows they can help. Here's the link to the page that waas referred to.

FWIW, XP has a lot of security issues. Might be worth considering and upgrade to at least Win7.
