Migrating application from windows XP to windows 8

Dear Experts,

I have some applications that run smooth on win XP.
I need to migrate these applications from win XP to win 8.

The thing I concern now is that, whether all the Window APIs can work normally?
Can you help me:
-  How to find risk or can-not-work APIs (when move from Win XP to Win 8)?

Regards.

Thanks for your all expert comments.
All are valid for me with my problem.
I'm going to accept all solutions.

But, I want to ask 1 more question:
-  Can I export all used Win APIs from my source code? Do we have any tool for doing this (It's terrible if we do it manually - my project is about hundreds of kLOC)?

Regards.

Thanks for your quick answer.
Please explain me one more:
-  Why in windows 8 (C:\Windows\System32), there're:
   +  not only user32.dll and kernel32.dll
   +  but also api-ms-win-....dll and \downlevel\api-ms-win-....dll
