HP Image Zone for Windows 8?

I'll admit I have not thoroughly researched this (because I'm spending too much time researching how to solve Windows8 problems!):  Sounds like Image Zone is no longer supported and not available for Win7 or Win8... with no plans to offer it.  Is this correct?  If so, is there any way a former XP user can view old Image Zone projects (albums), or are they all gone at this point unless I can get my hands on an XP computer somewhere?  Such a shame; was a good program, and I created a lot of albums using that software.  HP just keeps losing points.

Re: HP Image Zone for Windows 8?

Thanks for the links, VJ.  I am new to the "virtual computer" scenario, and 2nd set of instrux scare me too much (lots of follow-up comments to fill in gaps).  But I may try the first one.  So it's like having both operating systems on my computer?  And I should be able to open XP programs again?  Appreciate the leads. 

 

My current plan was to find an XP computer for rent (some public place) or still owned by a friend, then print out the photo albums I'll lose with Windows 8.  I probably won't recreate them with another software, but at least my former efforts will have some legacy output.
