Hello,

According to the system requirements Visual Studio 2013 can only be installed on Windows 7 and above, or Windows Server 2008 and above.  My question is, if I create a form in Visual Studio 2013, can the form be opened on a Windows XP computer?

As long as it doesn't have a dependency on Framework 4.5.  If you build it for Framework 4.0 or earlier it will work on XP.

Windows Forms are supported on Windows XP without question.  .net framework is another question, as noted above .net 4.5 and higher is supported only on Vista or newer
