bote.exe is not a valid WIN32 application

That's the message that pops up if I try to run (by double-clicking on it) bote.exe under Windows XP (both under VirtualBox, and on a real computer).

In both cases, double-clicking the JAR file works fine.

bote.exe seems to have the PE-file flag for a 32-bit executable. Does it contain, and try to execute, a 64-bit executable?

Nope, it should be a regular 32 bit executable. However I have no XP installation at hand at the moment so I have no idea why it doesn't works under XP. Under 7 and 10 it works fine. The jar can be of course run, but then the user needs to have jre installed on their system.

Good news, there is an extra Windows XP package in itch.io for those who have issues running the game.

What was changed to make bote.exe run under Windows XP?

I dug up an older version of packr (the wrapper used to run the game). It's ok on XP, in theory it works for newer Windows also, however I can't guarantee that.
