I need a computer to install Windows XP Pro 32-bit that I need to run old applications. Is Rasperry Pie compatible with Windows XP?

Not natively some people have got it running through emulation applications like qemu. You'll need an ISO and activation key though and the activation servers are no longer up.

In theory, there are ways. In practice, not practical at all. Even if you got it running on a Pi, it would be far to slow to be of any practical use.

In other news, please do not use all caps subject line. It makes you look like you're shouting and most people don't like being shouted at.

No. Raspberry Pi computers are based on ARM architecture and Windows XP was designed to run on x86 hardware. You cannot run Windows XP directly on a Raspberry Pi.

To run windows your better off using windows on raspberry https://www.worproject.ml/ which is based off on windows on arm 10 https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/arm/ (BTW windows on arm can do 32 bit emulation of programs)
if you need to run old applications if its windows xp just use real hardware or x86 emulation (like vmware,virtualbox,proxmox etc.)
