Is the customer using XP for all client machines or just select
machines that may run some legacy app?

The app will run on any version of Windows.  The reason for the XP
is that the customer doesn't believe in fixing what ain't broke

it's your job to epxlain him *it is broken* because windows XP is
completly out of support and nothing else than a lottery in production

I get the distinct feeling that this has been tried, but sometimes you
just have to do what you are told with what you are given

i am fully aware that this is not so easy in every case

but when i am the IT guy and i take responsibility the stuff is running i can not and will not setup something where i know doing so would be irresponsible and nothing else than a timebomb and when it explodes i have to suck collecting the pieces

frankly "Windows XP" - which braindead idiots are using still such outdated crap, that was somehow rencent (and not brand new) when i changed to work in the IT and is now nearly *10 years* ago when i decided to never touch any Microsoft OS in the future and even don't support any Windows machine within my own family

*10 years* and we talk about *IT and not museum*
