Windows out of date?

A friend of mine pre-ordered the game with the rest of us, running on a bit older computer (he's still running XP). He reported to me this morning when he tried to launch he got the error "Windows out of date"

Has anyone else encountered this, or know what the problem is? IE: Is it as simple as having him run Windows Updates, or will he need to upgrade to Win7 (which he should anyway)?

Windows XP is a supported OS, but probably requires Service Pack 3. If Windows Update aren't ran often, run them to get up to the latest SP and try again :-)

(This isn't specified anywhere, just says XP, but I assume that's the problem!)

Certainly worth a try. I'll have him run updates when he gets home.
