What options are there for running software that could only run on XP, but on a windows 8 box?
According to this article, the options are:
- VMware Player
- Hyper-V virtualization
The article adds:
Windows 8 doesn’t include a licensed copy of Windows XP, so you’ll need a copy of Windows XP to set this up.
Does this apply to all the options? Is there a way to run XP-only software on Windows 8 without having a copy of XP? I have software that needs to interface with a USB device (serial-USB bridge).
Are there any other options?
