We have an in house custom app that was built in VB 6. The in house app is a SQL database app and was built for Windows XP. We have to replace a computer here an there, and since we are buying Windows 8 computers, our app doesn't work on Windows 8.
We have also tried:
- to run the app in compatibility mode
- XP Mode, back on Windows 7
Rewriting the app is going to take time. So for the time being we started to use VMware. VMware works alright, we have a few kinks here and there. I was wondering are there other options out there besides virtual machines? We would like to keep Windows XP on alive on the network as long as possible.
