Where did you get XP originally? You'll need a Product Key to install it unless you were offered downgrade rights.

Have you tried installing the problem app in XP SP3 or earlier Compatibility Mode?

There are no downgrade rights for retail Win7 purchases that I know of. You'd have to buy XP. Best to find a friend or family member who had it and is not using their retail CD with Product key. A local shop may also have suggestions or a spare copy. Otherwise the eBay links are at your own risk.
