I'd like to buy Flash but can't afford the current version.  I see Flash 5.0 on ebay and amazon for good prices.  I've checked around the internet but can't seem to confirm if Flash 5.0 will even run on XP.   Does anyone know for sure if Flash 5.0 will run on XP?  It doesn't include XP as one of the operating systems it runs on but that's probably because it came out before XP.

Thanks for your help.

I'd at least look for Flash 6 if you intend to learn...  ;)

According to the creators of the software - Macromedia - , yes.
Check out the release notes/system requirements here: http://www.adobe.com/support/flash/releasenotes/5/releasenotes_5.htm#systemrequirements

It says quite clearly:
System requirements
Authoring
Windows
133 MHz Intel Pentium processor, Windows 95/98, NT4, 2000, or later

Thank you for your answers and your help!  I had looked at the Adobe website but each search I did brought me to info on a later release of Flash.
