Wargaming ceases to support Windows XP & Vista Operating Systems

Official statement:

We inform you that since July 25, 2019, Wargaming (completely, comprehensively) ceases to support Windows XP and Windows Vista. To continue using the company’s products, you need to install a more modern operating system. If you cannot upgrade Windows XP online, you can use the temporary alternative method to start and update World of Tanks.

How to play on Windows XP

We have stopped official support for Windows XP. However, we want users who do not have the technical ability to install a more modern operating system to continue to play World of Tanks.

To run the game on a computer running Windows XP, follow the instructions:

Download the RestoreLauncher app.

Close Game Center.

Unpack the application to the game folder (for example, D: \ Games \ World_of_Tanks).

Run the application.

When the installation is complete, an alternative launcher will start.

Now you can play World of Tanks on Windows XP.

    1. According to steam. 70% run Win 10 64 bit. 21% run Windows 7 64 bit. Under 3% still, run Windows 8 64bit. Steam pulled the XP plug back in January this year. Then they claimed 0.001% still used it. So I doubt this will affect many. If any.

    2. I’m an XP user. Got a couple of laptops but playing games on those suck. Super rock solid OS… Security through obscurity.

    Then expects said people to know how to unpack an application. On top of that, isn’t this in direct conflict with WG moving strictly to the new Game Center?

  3. I tried this on one of my older PC with XP and it works. I tried installing XVM though and it is not working so mods probably are out.
