OpenCPN and Windows xp

Dear,
Iím trying to run open cpn on a windows xp computer who havenít been updated for years. Opencpn wonít start.
Could it be a result of the earlier windows policy of blocking open source programs, because the computer is on board and not connected to the internet?
Kind regards
Andrť
