MSI's work on Windows XP and onward and are agnostic of Windows version unless the author puts an explicit test (there used to be an install for MSI on win 2000 too if I remember correctly). If 32 bit Lua is supported on XP, then this is a non-issue once a 32 bit installer is created.

Exposing your Windows to internet is not a good idea even if you have all "security updates".
WinXP is still in use because it is the most comfortable Windows ever created by MS.
Usually, little efforts are required to add compatibility of programs you write with WinXP.
