It crashes in OpenAL. That's as far as we can get with the crash log.
Is this the DLL that got shipped with LZDoom or some fallback solution for XP?

That's not a bug, XP is no longer supported as i said long ago. I already mentioned it in the release thread. It will run replacing the shipped dll with one from a previous LZDoom or GZDoom 32 bit version such as 3.87b.

And this clearly shows that even with the best of efforts, XP support has become a futile endeavour for most software as more and more third party dependencies are no longer available for it.
While in this case the old DLL may still work, there have been changes to the sound code recently, that would actually break with an older, less featured version of OpenAL.

Now that i remember the latest official OpenAL release still runs on XP AFAIK since Chris compiles them with MinGW. But it came out after the LZDoom release.

You'd need to rename it to OpenAL32.dll tough.

I downloaded openal32 from openal official site, and copied it from System32. It works! This method seems to be helpful for Windows XP users. By the way, does this library support sound from the latest build? You said openal32 in 3.87b is broken...

No, LZDoom uses OpenAL-soft and not the ancient and obsolete OpenAL by Creative. So either you download it from the link i posted above or you get it from 3.87b. I never said it was broken.
