I have bring my old XP computer out of storage every now and then to run just 1 program. I can't install it on my Windows 10 laptop because the old server to verify my setup key no longer exists. Is there any way to work around this?

Are you talking about activating Windows XP? or your 1 Program? What Program is it?
If XP never uses Windows Update, and is Not online, XP will run without Activation enough to run your one program.
If you run Belarc advisor on your XP machine, it will tell you the product key for XP and for your 1 Program. You also can install Windows XP in a virtual machine and install your 1 Program and not have to drag your XP box out of the closet.

It's Metastock software, according to them I need to upgrade to the latest version in order to run on Windows 10.

That's the way of the world. We have to keep moving forward, we can't stay stagnant in the past. Old software does not work well on Newer Operating systems, it's best to upgrade.
Of course if you don't want to pay, there are other programs that are similar that might be cheaper or even Free. https://www.tpsort.com/similar-to/23...ilar-softwares
