WinSCP 5.17.1 setup.exe fails to install on Windows XP - not a valid Win32 application

I know XP is dead, but my PC died and I was forced to pull out an old laptop that has Windows XP on it and tried to install WinSCP 5.17.1 (website says it supports XP service pack 2 through Windows 10).
I have XP service pack 3, but when I tried to run the setup.exe I get
WinSCP-5.17.1-Setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application.
So it seems WinSCP does not work on Windows XP as advertised.
Please don't tell me to get rid of my XP laptop, its all I have while my other PC is getting repaired.
Thank you.
