I haved installed QGis 2.14.13 on Windows XP (in a virtual machine) and this works fine.

Since version 2.14.14 QGis doesn't work on Windows XP. When launching QGis I have the following message:

The procedure entry point GetTickCount64 could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll.

This error is due to libcurll.dll that needs this procedure. The 2.14.13 version of QGis provides another version of cUrl that doesn't depend on this procedure. When copying & replacing libcurl.dll from version 2.14.13 to 2.14.14, QGis starts successfully.
