Run Access2013-32bit under WinXP?

candide asked
Last Modified: 2017-03-24
my customer has some PCs still running under Windows XP. The most users are using Windows7-32bit and all is fine. Actually I have many Access2013-32bit databases, and some of them should run under WinXP. WinXP works with A2007 but not A2013. Is there a tool (virtualization?) or any simple way to run A2013 under WinXP?
The aim is to do any frontend code changes only in the A2013 application. Until now I have to develop two frontends (A2007 and A2013). Thats erroneous!
