I think you are going to struggle with XP as VSCode requires the following which is not available on XP

Additional Windows requirements
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 is required for VSCode. If you are using Windows 7, please make sure .NET Framework 4.5.2 is installed.

NB I've just fired up a virtual XP machine and it fails trying to install 4.5.2

Probably worth upgrading your laptop to Windows 10, you might still get it free, but if not buy a key from somewhere like G2A (other sites are available)

I think I only paid about £15 to use in Parallels

I doubt it could handle win10, it's probably 20 years old, the screen is 4:3 which is ideal for the emulator in full screen though.

I'm sure (99%) that I was running an older version of beebem on my XP netbook with vs6, but I built it locally with static linking as I do for tools. If it is vscode, I can't help.

I gave up trying to get it to work, tried it on win10 desktop too and it closes down immediately with no message.
I'll work on electrem over multiple files, it'll just be a bit awkward.
