im sure theres a compatibility thing built into xp. just right click the file, go to properties, and there should be an option somewhere in there. this may not be what you are looking for but worth a shot

i used VMware Workstation, but i dont know if its fast enough to run a game. It emulates a computer and you install windows on it. and such.... google it
