I used to do cad drawings with autocad 2000 software. And i just cant get along with other versions.
I have had to run a virtualbox program to run this in the past, but have forgotten how to configure things. Its just a major headache to work through the various settings, and to not have a fatal error when the program runs in the virtual machine.

I need to run windows xp on a virtual machine , running autocad 2000, which has access to my printer and local drives. Can anyone describe what steps i should take please?

I have a win 10 laptop 64bit with 8gb ram.

For about $50 (U.S.) someone would be glad to sell (or give) you an old XP machine. Since it would not be online, security wouldn't be a problem. A parallel protocol connection could be made to the printer.

Since you asked about how to install Virtual Machine. You will need a copy of Windows XP SP3 on CD or USB Flash.
