Discogs "Failed to authenticate using OAuth" on Windows XP

Hi,

I'm having the same problem - Failed to authenticate using OAuth (1)

12175: 12175: A security error occurred

Using XP

Has anyone any ideas?

It's due to TLS 1.2 not being supported by Windows XP. See the linked topic for details:

I don't think it's a good idea still going online with windows XP. You should think about security risk.
Think about an update to Windows 10, its not as evil as many people say. :smiling_imp:
If you still have some software that NEED to run on XP, you can use VirtalBox.

Another important point of view is:
Most developers does not fully support XP any more, stopped testing on XP. (don't know about Florian)
BUT: Even, most Software still runs on XP, you will get more and more problems - like your actual problem, and one day - boom - software stop working completly.

After 12 years, support for Windows XP ended April 8, 2014. Microsoft will no longer provide security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system. It is very important that customers and partners migrate to a modern operating system such as Windows 10.
...
PCs running Windows XP after April 8, 2014, are not considered secure.
