AND another thing: Build K-meleon with Visual Studio 2013 if you want it to run on "legacy" CPUs like Intel Pentium 3s & older and AMD K7 CPUs & older (Athlon XP/Sempron).
Attempting to build or create K-meleon with Visual Studio 2015 will KILL support for old CPUs and require minimum Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon 64/Sempron 64 (aka AMD K8) CPUs with SSE2 support. The recent Mozilla Firefox 49 betas (the win32 ones that I've tested) were built using VS2015 w/ Update 2 and will NOT install on older CPUs like Intel Pentium 3s & AMD-K7s (or any other processors w/out SSE2).
Windows build prerequisites
Firefox 48 and later build with Visual Studio 2015 in our official releases. You should be using Visual Studio 2015 to build all current versions of Firefox.
Firefox 37 through 47 build with Visual Studio 2013 (VC12) and possibly Visual Studio 2015 (although Visual Studio 2015 may not build every revision).
Earlier versions of Firefox build with older versions of Visual Studio.
In the past support to build with different compilers overlapped more.
So it might be possible to build with an older compiler but Mozilla does not recommend or guarantee it. Judging from past experience Mozilla sometimes prevents the use of older compilers while they still could work.
You can usually find people that build with other/older compilers and patches.
I last googled for such info 2 years back.
BTW. Chrome browser said - this version is the last update for Your legacy OS.
I am XP SP 3. So it is not only the hardware that is not supported any more by their US vendors.
