I am considering removing support for VS2008 and VS2010 in future versions of RackAFX. VS2015 Community is fully operational and is what most of us should be using anyway. Any major issues with pulling 2008 and 2010 support out? This is due in part because of my recent addition of x64 libraries so you can compile your RAFX plugin as a 64-bit VST2 or VST3 plugin. These libraries have ballooned out the size of the RackAFX installer and space needed for installation.

Also, due to a change in the VSTGUI4 library, RackAFX itself will not be compile-able on VS2008, which means that I can not target Windows XP - is anyone actually still on XP these days?

I'm on Windows 7 and VS 2013 so those changes would not affect me.

Not sure how accurate this is, but according to this chart, XP still has over 11% market share. Although probably much less so for developers.
