Is there a compatibility problem that would prevent a program running under Windows XP from accessing a SQL Server 2012 Standard instance running on a Windows 2008 server on the same domain?
This might be a stupid question; I know that it is not possible to instalar SQL Server 2012 on XP, but I cannot think of a reason why it would not allow access by a program.
So this is merely a stab in the dark. For the moment I only wish to know whether there are any problems en principio; if there are none I will try to come up with a minimal error case for my particular setup and ask a separate question.

I just confirmed that an application written in VB6 using ADO with the "Microsoft OLEDB provider for SQL Server" can connect to a SQL Server 2012 database. The connection string looks like this:
Provider=SQLOLEDB.1; Password=PasswordHere; Persist Security Info=False; User ID=SomeUserName; Initial Catalog=SomeDatabase; Data Source=SQL2012Instance
The operating system is Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3.
The operating system hosting the SQL database is Win-7.
The database engine is Microsoft SQL Server 2012 - 11.0.2100.60 (x64)
