I'm really surprised! The iCloud application for PC needs Vista or 7, when many users still preffer XP.

So, I bought som cloud space and I can't look up what is there from my computer.

Please, realise an XP driver!

    You can hack iCloud control panel to work on Windows XP to give you synced access to Contacts, Calenders, Reminders and Bookmarks. It also can be used to set up your me.com mail.

     

    I found a solution here, have written it up in clearer english and added details re IMAP support for me.com addresses here:

    In summary:

     

    Requirements:
    iTunes 5.10
    Unpacking program e.g. 7-Zip or WinRar
    Orca MSI editor

    The iCloud setup hack for Windows XP:

    1. Download iCloud Control Panel for Windows.
    2. Open iCloudSetup.exe file with WinRar or 7-Zip and extract.
    3. Navigate to and open the iCloud.msi or iCloud64.msi (for 64bit systems) with Orca.
    4. In the left table select LaunchCondition. Then change in the right table “VersionNT> = 600” to “VersionNT> = 200” and Save.
    5. Run modified iCloud.msi and install.
    6. Run iCloud Control Panel, located in the Windows Control Panel, and set up as you want.

     

    Have fun!
