When installing REW on Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 or 8.1 you may encounter a somewhat cryptic error message: "The program can't start because api-ms-win-core-timezone-l1-1-0.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.". This is caused by the Java runtime using components from the Windows Universal C Runtime which are not present on older Windows installations. To fix it see this Microsoft knowledge base article, KB2999226 or for 32-bit Windows XP use the Visual C++ Redistributable Runtimes AIO Repack v19 2019-04-24.

Have a problem installing REW x32 5.20.5 on XP Pro SP3, double clicking installation executable brings up an error popup window which says:
REW_Windows-x32_5_20_5.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point RegGetValueA could not be located in the dynamic link library ADVAPI32.dll

I installed the Visual C++ pack linked above but that doesn't help.

Any ideas?

The REW installer is no longer compatible with WinXP 32-bit, need XP Pro x64 or later. The last build that supports 32-bit XP is V5.20 RC11.
