so i tested on a virtual machine (one of the official VMs provided by
MS, running "Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Version 2002, Service
Pack 3"), and here's my findings:
- the GUI wouldn't start for any Pd after 0.42 (but i only tested the
last bugfix release of each Pd-version), the wish*.exe simply refusing
to run (calling wish85.exe explicitely would yield something like "The
system cannot execute the specified program").
i guess you don't have this problem...
- luckily, Pd would start without GUI
- downloading the latest iemlib[v1.21] for Windows via deken (obviously
on a different machine were the GUI works), and and starting Pd with
"pd.com -nogui -lib ...\iemlib\iemlib" resulted in the printout of:

so i conclude that while there are certainly problems with getting a
modern Pd to run on XP, iemlib seems to work (at least: load) nicely.


PS: please do not hijack threads (the iemlib error seems to be quite
unrelated to "German translation of Pd")
