PSXE 2016 Linker->SubSystem Settings

All,

Upgraded to PSXE 2016 a while ago (Win7-32) & started distributing my program with binaries compiled by it. Recently, a user running WinXP said the program would not run. Started digging through the setting & found Linker->SubSystem Settings which could be set to either Windows (it was) or WindowsXP ....eeewwww. Since I want full compatibility across Windows platforms, I guess I have to choose the "WindowsXP" option which got me to wondering, I presume the option is there for a reason so, if I compile with the WindowsXP, what do I loose with newer Windows versions (32-bit BTW)?

Thanks in advance, Jeff

Have you seen https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/linking-applications-using-visual-studio-2012-to-run-on-wi... ?  It suggests the issue is with the underlying C++ libraries, so from a Fortran perspective you should not lose anything.
