Hah, I've got Mavis Beason version 2 running on XP Service Pack 2 with no problems so I can't see how version 4 can't run.

But having said that, right-click on the shortcut its put on the desktop/start menu -> Properties -> Compatibility -> and choose to run the program in compatibility mode for a previous version of Windows. Not guaranteed to fix the issue but worth a shot anyway.
