Broken: blender-2.76.0 .5c5df9d
Worked: stable 2.76b
Short description of error
blender builds do not launch anymore on XP with a missing GetFinalPathNameByHandleW can't be found in KERNEL32.dll
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
While i know Blender is not supported anymore for winXP, it was still working great on it,
Can't tell which commit killed Blender on XP as it's been a long time i didn't tried a buildbot version, so i googled to find what was the problem, and it appears that GetFinalPathNameByHandle is only Vista and superior :
If this new change is final for 2.77 , maybe a mention that Blender does not work on window XP anymore should be made on release note for that coming version to mark that while 2.76b was , while unsupported, working great on XP, 2.77 will simply not work on this OS.
