I have perforce upgraded to W10 from W7. The routine stuff is fine - after a bit of digging around. However I have two applications I can no longer run.
Locoscript (DOS) which has an extensive English-Russian database built up over decades
Photoshop Elements (XP) - I'm accustomed to it and would like to continue with it.
I was running both under Virtual Machine on W7. I have backups of the
VSV and VMC and VHD files.
Can you suggest how I can set up for these programs?

I also have a system backup of the 7 system.

Possibilities are in order of strong preference -
- a virtual PC under W10 (where from ?)
- a W7 boot on my W10 machine, just to run the Virtual PC for these two environments;
- for the DOs unpack the VSV data and possible DOSBOX to run the program
- Get a separate box and try to reinstall W7 on it from my system backup
= other

In each case I not sure where to start. Is it possible? Any suggestions?
Please !

I would try running the programs in compatibility mode. See if they will run in Windows 7 or XP mode.
