Considering that Wizards of the Coast's involvement with the Pokemon TCG ends in about 6 weeks, this might be a better question to ask of Nintendo/PUI over on their site: http://www.pokemon-tcg.com/index.jsp .

Actually there already is a version compatible with Windows XP. If you buy Pokemon 4 ever there is a thing in the DVD-Rom features that allows you to play the "Trading Card Interactive Tutorial" which is the same thing almost down to the decks used.

With the Play It CD-ROM, technically, you should be able to run it on Windows XP because 95/98 is the minimum requirement. Windows XP, obviously, is way more advanced than 95/98, so it should work without difficulty.
I also thought of this. It also might depend on what version of XP you have. Home or Professional? Althought it shouldn't make a difference on which version of XP you use, Home edition is technically supposed to be for, well, a home environment (such as surfing the net, gaming, etc). The Professional edition is supposed to have a lot of bussiness programs in their, which means that XP Pro. is supposed to be for a working/bussiness environment. It's the info that I got when I first heard about Windows XP, so I dont know if it is all true or not.

The main difference between Professional and Home is that Professional has a lot of file security tools that Home users don't need. You could really run either one you want, and Play It will run on both.

Play It! V2 wont work on my XP system either - I dont believe that it is because it cant work, but rather down to the fact that the installer wont let you install the program. I am told that the way around this is to download a compatability program from microsoft, but I found the file to be little large for a 56k connection...
