I didn't read all the posts, but you can simply install a Virtual Machine (free) off Microsofts website, install Windows XP on it, and you then have a nice copy of XP you can open or close when you wish!
I mean, try running a binary from one Linux distro on quite a different distro - much chance that it won't work unless you recompile the entire thing for that distro.
(Just smile and nod, go along with it. They don't KNOW you haven't been able to follow this thread for 12 or 13 posts yet. Maybe I'll eat something in a while, or draw a pretty picture. Yes, that is what I will do.)

Sorry, I tend to forget that those terms are less known by the public since less people use Linux.
Compatibility mode might not do much for most stuff, but there have been many cases where I've used it for things like older games for 95 that wouldn't work on XP and such. It does do something, and does tend to fix a lot of issues, such as a program not starting up like MMF on Vista. That's just not the case here.
