    Hi folks,

    I am still on v.1.7
    I tried some newer versions years ago but preferred the look of v.1.7 so stuck with it.

    Everything is still cool with it, but it would be nice if I could expand the program's window.
    It pops up on the screen in a tiny window.

    Does anyone know the first version after v.1.7 where it is possible to expand the PS window (re-size it)?

    In an effort to investigate this, I downloaded the latest version on my WinXP PC.
    I installed it and tried to run it.
    The I got this message:
    "pwsafe.exe is not a valid Win32 application"

    So it won't run.
    Is there a place I can get earlier versions?

      Mark, you can get old versions here:

      https://sourceforge.net/projects/passwordsafe/files/passwordsafe/

      I believe 3.38.2 is the last version that works with XP

    Thanks Larry, I was able to get 3.21 and it works.
    I can re-size the window now but the text doesn't get larger.
    I did find out that you can change the font size with this version though.
    So that helps.

    Not sure if I'll stick with this version or go back to 1.7.
    1.7 covers the basics very well.

    3.39.0 works under XP but you have to download the XP version (XP in the file name). 3.39.1 is the same as 3.39.0 except that it fixes the non-English language strings. If using the default English, then 3.39.0 is fine.

    We are trying to build a XP version of the latest release but I am told it is problematical as we also have to use an older version of Microsoft'sVisual Studio, which doesn't support the latest level of the C++ language.

    Currrently, the normal release supports Vista, WIndows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 & Windows 10. Note however that Microsoft stopped mainstream support of Vista on April 10, 2012 and will stop extened support on April 11, 2017.(see https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/13853/windows-lifecycle-fact-sheet for details of the support of this and later releases of Windows).
