This is probably the wrong forum.

Sounds like you need an Architecture/Design first.

Laptop and phone are generally very different devices and attempting to shoehorn an app that is well fitted for a laptop to a phone using claimed generic solutions do not work well. On the other hand if your functionality fits well on a phone completely then making it work on a laptop is easier.

Your 'server' will require a service application and that means it must run as a windows service. I think even XP allows the service to do nothing but run a batch file which makes that implementation easier but that doesn't give you much control. Otherwise you need to write an actual service. I suggest you become familiar with logging if you do not already use that.

Not sure how you are going to run a javascript server on an XP box. I will note that Apache, older versions, ran on XP so you could run that as a server. Those older versions are not up to date and consequently could have security vulnerabilities. I doubt you will be able to run nodejs and I doubt IIS for that box ran javascript (not on the server.) It ran VB Script I believe but you would need to use javascript for phones/laptops which you could inject into the pages that your serve. But if I recall you had to inject it directly at least that was the only way I saw it done on XP.

On XP, of course, the server will be restricted by the memory.

You could use an html front end only if you restrict functionality in the front end. That should make things easier.

As the service provider if you want to remotely manage the device while providing a different experience for your users you might want to plan that from the beginning. You will need to plan for authentication and authorization and how you remove access when an employee leaves. That is a process question and not a technology one.
