Bill BARRETT has experienced issues with loading the COBIA project as it stands in Phase 2. Seems that supporting Windows XP in COBIA is leading to these issues: additional libraries need to be installed in Visual Studio which may be a nuisance..Logic behind providing support for Windows XP in COBIA was discussed since pros and cons can be listed. SDK 7.1 allowing for Windows XP support is needed only for compilation of the COBIA project. Any derived product does not require to be compiled for XP should the author not want to do so. Nor does use of COBIA require administrator rights
