Some longtime Windows XP users are having a hard time letting go of the operating system that has served them so well over the years, but The Register has discovered a way to keep Windows XP alive even if you’ve upgraded to Windows 8 or higher. Basically, The Register says you should start by downloading the free Windows XP mode emulator that unfortunately only works on Windows 7 Pro and above but that can still run on Windows 8 with just a few workarounds. Once you download Windows XP mode, you’ll have to choose a new virtual machine monitor (VMM) to run the program and The Register says both the VMWare Player and Oracle’s Virtual Box work just fine for these purposes.
