Can the user install Kodi 17.4 krypton on windows XP?

Kodi has ended its support recently for windows XP back in April 2017 which means that the latest version compatibility is not possible at all with Windows XP.
As said by the Kodi developers the minimum requirement for Kodi 17.4 Krypton is that one should have windows XP at last.

So I would personally suggest all the user of window XP to upgrade their operating system as it is the best option rather than converting/turning your personal computer into the home theatre personal computer(HTPC). Or you can install the older version (XBMC software) on your windows XP.

Note:- There are chances that the user can get full functionality of Kodi but some of the add-ons won’t work properly.

Instructions to update/upgrade Kodi on Windows:

The process to upgrade/update remains same as Kodi doesn’t offer any of the automatic updater built-in software. For upgrading/updating Kodi on windows the user has to download the latest version from the official website of Kodi (https://kodi.tv/download) and after downloading the user has to go to the download location and run the installation process.

Likewise in many cases, the library and setting of the old software remains saved and doest changes. So when the user will be installing Kodi 17.4 krypton over Kodi v16 “Jarvis” during the installation process a pop-up window will occur on the screen of the users device asking overwriting existing files , user has to click on the yes option. But it is said that backing up of all data before upgrading Kodi on windows is a good sign of the sensible decision.
