Hardy: in your Virtual Machine software create a machine running 32-bit Windows XP. (You can still buy XP on Ebay.) That 32-bit XP machine will happily run the Chadwyck-Healey CD-ROMs even though the software running the virtualization is 64 bit. That’s what I do to keep running CD-ROM versions (well, virtualized as hard disk images of CD-ROMs) of OED, Editions and Adaptations of Shakespeare, ESTC, and The Arden Shakespeare.  Running the Virtual Machine is a 64-bit copy of Windows 7, but the applications don’t know that.


Happy to expand on the above if it’s helpful.
