I've been using, as my main machine, a box with Windows 7 on it and a Virtual Machine from Microsoft called XP Mode.
A lot of stuff that I like to use wasn't functioning or available for Win7 so this arrangement allows me to bounce back and forth from operating system to operating but yet access the same files.
However, MS is pushing, pushing, pushing, Windows 10. And I have researched how to set up an XP Virtual Machine within it.
My other option is two machines networked with the font files kept on a networked directory and accessible to both machines. But that seems like the long way around.
(I guess my next move is to buy a Win 10 machine and experiment but I'd love to know what others have done. I do have a large screen Mac but for various reasons I'd rather not run an XP VM on that.)
Has anybody on this forum faced this problem? Any advice to offer?
