Filesystem writes are cached and combined into one larger write when going to disk, this won't have a significant impact on anything. Do you have any data to support this change?
Here's data to back it up: M$ alone turns Last_access_update OFF on all NT6.x windoze - that is 6.0 (Vista) 6.1 (7) 6.2 (8) 6.3 (8.1) and of course least but not last 6.4 (10). :)
All this does it prevents useless disk accesses for nothing (confirmed by my tests), but the choice is up to the user, of course.

Grrrr .. all I did was update my Visual Studio 2019 version to the latest, without touching the compiler (still using v141_xp). But apparently they made some change that uses this API call, which isn't available on Windows XP. Will search for a solution
This is why there's a project for extending XP functions, to work around the artificial limitations.

2.4 works fine with my XP set up, except it crashes when using the built in screenshot option. No worries because prn screen/paint does the job.

In GPU Z 2.40 version, are all installation methods still executable on Windows XP?
As far as I remember, no.
You'll need an earlier version if you want to do a full install on XP, but I can't tell you which one is the last that works I'm afraid.

This has not been working for a while now.
So, yes, latest version with installer working is not 2.40 or 2.39 -- it is more versions back. :)
Exact version it is, maybe W1zzard knows best. :)

Understand So is the GPUZ installer actually unavailable in version 2.40? It's not that it became unavailable after 2.42 was repaired

Actually I've just checked the original report about this on MSFN, and 2.41 was the first version reported as not installing on XP, so it may well be that 2.40 is actually OK.
The problem occurred when @W1zzard changed the authoring software version.

This is the reason why I confirmed with version 2.40. I want to know if GPUZ version 2.40 can be installed normally on Windows XP.

Having now reviewed the history, the answer to that is yes.

Some errors in that GPU-Z for GeForce3: A) it's got 8 TMU's and B) bandwidth is 2x the reported ~7.4GB/s C) Texture fillrate is 1.6GTexels.
Thanks for the observation, but I really don't mind as it plays NOLF perfectly well :)

The running status of different versions of GPU Z installer on Windows XP
Version 2.30 is installed normally in Windows XP
2.31-2.35 version crashes cannot be installed
After 2.36, a notification that requires Windows Vista will pop up

I always use the zipped version and the latest, 2.42, works on XP, the screenshot feature does not - "couldn't quantize bitmap".
