Re: Panorama printer with paper rolls?
- Sorry to hear that, Bjorn. I'll bet you could buy a computer for $100 that would boot XP off those old disks and keep you printing. That might be cheaper and certainly less stressful than wrestling with software almost-solutions. But if you really want to do that, I suggest you install VirtualBox (free at https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads) on your new computer, and run the old WinXP as a guest OS. That might cost you the use of the printer on the new one, but should keep all your setup including licenses working as it did. Do a partition-image backup of the old disk against the day when it dies, and you could be good for a decade.
Best regards, Tom
