Another way is to import the compatws.inf security template locally on the workstation. That usually does the trick as far as getting older apps to work in Windows XP.
1) Log in as an administrator
2) Open up a command prompt
3) go to C:\windows\security\templates
4) run secedit /configure /db compatws.db /cfg compatws.inf
