The agent versions can be mixed in your environment, that doesn't matter.  The extension managing them in epo is backward compatible.  You would just check the 5.0.3 agent in master repository (I would recommend a separate branch) and push it out to your xp clients.

First refer to KB51111 - supported environments for VSE.  XP is kernel 5.1, so you can install only up to p7 for VSE on it.

If your operating system is not listed
This managed product is supported based on the NT Kernel version used by the operating system, rather than the operating system (version) in question. For VSE, this support breaks down as follows:

  • Windows NT Kernels 1.x - 4.x are not supported.
  • Windows NT Kernels 5.x and 6.x are supported by VSE 8.8 (General Availability) Patch 7.
  • Windows NT Kernels 10.x are supported by VSE 8.8 Patch 8 and later. IMPORTANT: Check the comparison chart to determine which patch version supports the proper build of Windows 10.x.

KB51573 lists supported environments for the agent.  That lists xp tablet can use up to 5.0.4, but in looking back at previous versions of that kb, normal xp systems (32 and 64 bit, only up to 5.0.3 ma version was supported.  So those are what you can use if you can't upgrade the OS on those systems.

On thing about that is that if anything goes wrong, the OS is no longer supported, so any support would be minimal and best effort only.
