The Microsoft Web Platform Installer is unable to install Acquia Drupal on Vista Home Basic due to an error in the feed. I was able to verify that it works just fine on Vista Home Basic by adding it in a custom feed. According to the
installation page, Acquia Drupal also supports Windows XP, but the same error in the feed prevents it from being installed there.
The error is either that the application metadata osList value for the installer is
SupportedAppPlatformsExcludeXP or that the osTypes value for
NoXPSupport lists individual types instead of simply Client and is missing

Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3. And I checked that Vista Home Basic supports Drupal by correcting the feed and adding it to Web Platform Installer as a custom feed. Drupal requirements are no different from those of WordPress, which is
available on Vista Home Basic and Windows XP without any modifications to the feed.
