I have a legacy hp scanner that I am trying to run on my windows 7 machine. I've explored VirtualPC, but it appears that my processor doesn't support that. I'm now exploring other options.
I'm wondering if I can run VMware or Virtual Box and install a copy of Windows XP in it, and then install the scanner drivers in the virtual system. To scan, I would start the virtual copy of XP and run the scan from within there.
