Trying to run msys2-i686-20140704.exe crashes with an illegal instruction on my (fairly old) computer. My CPU is an Athlon XP (no SSE2 support). Any solutions or is it just too old?

    You could use the .7z file instead of the installer, though not having
    SSE2 means some things won't run I'm afraid, for example Qt and any
    package that uses it (the installer fails to run due to being built
    with the Qt Installer Framework). Most other packages will work since
    we don't generally enable SSE2 on i686.

    .xz file instead of .7z , right? Anyhow I think that will work, thanks.
