Since I don't have Windows XP, I cannot investigate this matter myself.
But you can help me out. First, download this file:

http://www.chessvariants.com/programs.dir/zillions/Shogi-test.zrf

This file is just like the official Shogi.zrf except that only the
alldrops tuning is available, which eliminates the need to define two sets
of pieces, and the piecelist macro is no longer used to list the images
for each piece. Instead, each piece has its images listed separately.

After you download this file, follow this procedure:

Open the ZRF with Zillions. When it complains about a specific graphic
file, add the complete name of that file (directory + file name) to a
list. Then edit the ZRF by replacing the image that doesn't work with one
that does. It doesn't matter what image you use here. It could be the
same piece everytime. Any piece you already know works will do. Repeat
this procedure until Zillions no longer complains about any graphic files.
Then send me the list of images that would not work under Windows XP.

This list will help me figure out what is wrong with the files that don't
work. I may then send you some test files to see if I'm on the right
track.
