Get this driver Printer_H625cdw_Software_And_Driver_Dell_A02_WIN_DE.exe and scroll down the page for supported systems and it says XP is supported.

XP is dead so all you can do is see if it works.

John,

I tried the driver in the link but it didn't work.

Do you know of any other drivers I can try?

That is the only driver available for that printer that ostensibly supports XP.

I suggest at this point you contact Dell Support to see if they can assist.

Side note:  From recent postings here on EE it appears that Dell has significantly raised the price for out-of-warranty, out-of-support calls.  Don't be surprised if they tell you that you'll have to pay for support.  If they do, pay it only on the basis of "solution or no payment."

Unfortunately, XP is no longer support by MS and thus its support has been abandoned by other vendors including HP. Which driver are you looking for? PCL, PS, FAX?
You could try hitting the windows update button when adding the device to see whether the refresh will get you remnants of the drivers MS published.
Do you not have the original Disks that came with the printer?

The remaining option is to find the drivers from the various driver sites, but be careful from which sites you are downloading drivers as they might come bundled with unwanted surprises.

Do you have another system on the network? one option could be to share the printer from the other system and that might get you the driver after which point you could setup the printer directly on the XP.

Using VISTA, but it seems that the published drivers have their dates in 10/2015 meaning after win XP was dropped from MS support; ...

I don't believe this printer has XP drivers.

Page 323 of the Users Guide shows the OSes supported.  Vista is the earliest Windows OS.
