I've been in contact with Rational because I have some existing test scripts not working with XP..and they told me that they will let me know if XP becomes supported in the future... And I heard there is a rumour that the whole "Visual Test" product may be succeeded by some other product....
I'm using QARun and I hate it, one of the reasons it it doesn't support ME or XP. I've tried AQTest and Visual Test...so far I really like visual test. But it not being supported on XP is a big disapointment that may stop me from choosing to buy this tool.

There is a Visual Test users group here... http://groups.yahoo.com/group/mt_info/
They have had many discussions on the future of Visual Test. They have contacted Rational directly but never seem to get a clear answer on whether VT will be supported, or even around in the near future.
You can search the archives there. It might help you decide whether or not to purchase it.
