ESP32 framework installation on Windows XP

On Windows XP the installation of arduino-esp32 fails with an error thrown by get.exe.

User JamesGKent found an explanation and partly solution.

Explanation:

The issue with esp32 on windows xp is get.exe, esptool.exe are basically a compiled version of the python scripts, they’ve been built with a new version of pyserial library that does not work on windows XP.

Solution:

Modify the platform.txt file so that it uses python like the Linux version does.
Note that you’ll need to have a version of python and the pyserial library installed that support XP (python <=3.4, pyserial 2.7). Changes in platform.txt:

This should let you compile at lease, but doesn’t fix the missing mkspiffs…
