    First make sure you have the latest service pack for your OS installed.

    You shouldn't get this message when you try to download, but you may get it
    when trying to install. IE8 requires at least Service Pack 2 on Windows XP,
    it's right there on the system requirements in the installation
    instructions. Did you read the installation instructions?

    Microsoft really should have put a version detection into the installer to
    avoid all this, popping up a message saying "You need to install Service
    Pack 2 or higher" would have made this step a whole lot simpler ...
