You are right, I did not test it on Windows XP (only down to Windows7)
thanks for reporting the issue!

I investigated the issue and it appears that to target Windows XP with
Visual Studio 2015 (which I am using) e specific compiler target needs
to be specified (noelicus reply):

This means that I would have to maintain a separate branch just for Windows XP.
To be honest, I am thinking of dropping Windows XP support, at least
in the short term.
After all Windows 7 has been released 7 years ago.
