    Microsoft have stopped supporting Windows XP and so have Oracle (via the installer anyway). It might
    work if you have Windows XP SP3 Professional 64Bit. By the report the installer is looking for this:

    Which XP does not support but was built into Vista, Windows 7 and 8.
    Yet while the official support for XP has ended, the Java binaries are still
    (as of Java 8u20 EA b05 at least) XP-compatible - only the installer isn't...

    Therefore the only solution I can suggest is try to install an older version of the
    JDK - version 5 or 6 should work with XP. Version 5 does work on Windows NT
    but takes a fair amount of tweaking. XP is newer than NT so shouldn't have any
