I have been trying to run XP based software (https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/638280/blitzkrieg-1-compatibility-issues-with-windows-10/?p=4167617) on my Windows 10 Home 64-bit equipped PC for about a week now, but have been experiencing frustrating crashes ever since the beginning.
I'm exploring options to keep the software, given that no-matter it being rather old, the game is just my kind of thing, and one is to have XP installed on a separate partition of my hard drive. However, It gives me the creeps to think that this might actually cause conflict with Win10; excepting Blitzkrieg Anthology, the name of the software involved here, the rest of the installed packages run on Win10, and it would be a massive screw-up if something like this happened.
Is it safe/not too complicated to do this? I haven't done anything yet, and am not exactly a computer expert (mostly a tutorial-based guy with a few bright ideas now and then).
By the way, PC is shared, and if I'm kind of an advanced beginner in this sort of matters, the other user is a complete neophyte, and it would cause him a nervous breakdown to have to choose between OS at startup. Can the switching be assigned exclusively to my profile (user), while his end stays with Win10 only?
