Check the Framework version that you are using for your solution in the Project Settings. Here is a table from Microsoft: .NET Framework System Requirements[^]

The target is already .NET framework 4.0 and Set the project type to x86 (not Any CPU).

Then the problem is something else. What is the error message (verbatim). Please update your question with the message by using the Improve question.
See How to: Modify the Target Framework and Platform Toolset[^].

To run .NET applications with XP you must at least

  • Set the project type to x86 (not Any CPU).
  • Target .NET framework 4.0 or lower (higher versions does not work with XP but are selected by default with recent VS versions).
  • Ensure that the XP system on which the application is installed has the corresponding .NET framework installed

The first two settings are VisualStudio project settings (see also above link).
For the third it might be necssary to include the framework redistributable with your installer.

Your question:

"so how i set the platform toolset for the project"

is explained in detail by the link of my solution. I just added some more information hoping it is useful.
