The whole issue of XP support is very murky, thanks to Microsoft.

No 7.1.1 is not supported on XP.  That much is clear, as John said.

And 7.1.3 will support the NetView client, but the Release Notes make no mention of the server or the standalone version, for a very good reason.  

MS says XP is not a server platform and therefore no server apps should be installed on it.  That means that they will not support running NetView server or standalone on XP, even if we do.  

Does it run?  Well, I have seen it.  Can we support it?  That remains to be seen.

Indeed it is.

The good news is that this is the perfect forum for discussing this.

> Is Windows XP a supported platform for NetView 7.1.1?

7.1.1 is rather old now....but it's release notes are here:
Windows XP is not mentioned in supported platforms.

NetView 7.1.3, however, does appear to support XP per its release
