compatibility SQL Server 2012 Express/localdb

Specs: Windows XP
Hi: I got some advice on deploying an app with the latest localdb that comes with SQL Server 2012. I started working on the app with VB.Net in the front end and ran a build/publish to test it on a Windows XP box... and low and behold.. it doesn't work and isn't compatible with XP. I started working on Access 2007, VBA and switched to VB.Net to make this a solid, deployable application. I'm now confused as to what to do. This application needs to run in all environments and will be sent to different firms across the country. What would be the easiest and safest way to build something that works everywhere?

Just so I have all the facts right.. you're creating an app with VB that has ties to SQL Server 2012 and you tested it on a Windows XP box and it didn't work.

In that case, I would stick strictly to VB6 and build it inside Access and leave out as little SQL as possible. I know it doesn't sound like a good answer but if you want a universal app, it has to be with a language all platforms understand.. and as of right now when it comes to visual basic, its VB6.
