If you are using Windows NT or Windows 2000, you can choose to
run Zope as a service. Running Zope as a service is a good idea
for a public server. If you are just running Zope for personal
use don't bother running it as a service. Keep in mind that if
you are running Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows ME (Millenium
Edition), you cannot run Zope as a service.

as far as I know,
XP is a NT technology....so you should be able to run it as service if you wish

Of course, Windows XP comes from NT technology, which means you have a list of services as in Windows 2000,
you can ask them to start manually or automatically. All NT services I've encountered so far have worked
flawlessly with Windows XP Pro. And yes, running Zope as a service is a better idea, servers are meant to
work this way.
