I have a ver that was supposed to work with XP but it came out later just before Needham closed it's doors, I think it has some bugs. I never had time to test this ver since I was still using my programmer on my old win98 PC. The XP ver doesn't seem to be working but haven't tried it other than install it.....I'll have to look into into it a little more, but here is a copy if you dare to try it yourself: For Windows XP users
