Not trying to make this minimalistic in response; but would running an XP guest virtual machine on a 7 host (or vice versa) be an option?

How would I go about doing this?
Thanks for the response. Any option is worth trying dude.
This is a lot of work on the line (grade-wise), since the consumer said they must have it run on their machine

The "lab" machine is the XP, correct?
And the software in question only runs on Win7? And running the prog on XP under compatibility and/or administrator mode (for Win7) has not worked?
Do you posses administrative rights to install a VM and configure it on the target machine?

Well I currently (by sheer luck) possess the same exact laptop as the consumer for my back up. It also was running xp so I just put a fresh copy of windows 7 on it. Currently, installing the labVIEW software and attempting to figure out if its a Windows issue. Will keep in touch.

I just had a very quick look at the NI site for Labview system requirements and the 2012 version is listed as running on 32 bit Win XP SP3, but makes no mention of 64 bit. I tried to check the requirements for 2011, but that is where it got a bit confusing. I think it only gives the data for the current product, which appears to v2012. Might the 32 / 64 bit difference be the problem ?
A VM is very easy to set up in Win 7 but I am not sure that it is the answer here. You set up a VM to run a different operating system on - in this case it would be XP - and then you run the software you want to run on XP in the VM. I did this a little while ago as an experiment to get some old software to run, and it worked. My primary objective was to get an old sim to run, which it did but very slowly. Interestingly, some truly ancient CAD software ran very well inside the VM. But what I was trying to do was to get old software to run on a modern operating system, and, if I understand Tom correctly, he is trying to get contemporary software to run on an older system.
It may be a lot of work, but will v2011 run on a Win 7 machine ? If it can, do the pump command sequences work ? In which case, which is more important to the client - using v2011 against v2012 or using a Win 7 computer against one running XP ? Just some thoughts.
I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

My wondering is if anyone would know how I could get like a log file or something through the serial port.

Could there be an exception to the the .exe file be created for firewall and antivirus/malware?
