Well, it is bit pain since the Motorola M1225 4.0 CPS can only running under Windows XP. Under the Windows 10 Pro 64bit it is can not even installed.

 

So first I used a old machine installed the Windows XP and software. It is good, but since I have limited space I don't want having extra monitor and case in my office.

 

Today I installed the Oracle VM VirtualBox and installed the Windows XP on it. Then loaded the software. Also install the driver for the FTDI driver for the XP.

 

Finally I can use it to program my M1225 under Windows 10 Pro 64bit now.

Did you try setting the backward compatibility in Windows 10? 

 

Right click icon.

Properties

Compatibility tab

"run this porgram in compatibility mod for"

"windows 7" or "windows Vista sp2" 

 

Doesn't always work but can work wonders for some software

I'm not sure about the software he has but I've run across some that still use 16 bit installers. Those don't work on Win 10 at all. Setting the compatibility mode is useless. The solution he used is a good one, running Win XP in a VM.

You can get a Win XP VM in Win 10 but you have to pay for the much more expensive Pro version to get the VM subsystem, "Hyper-V".

VirtualBox does about the same thing for zero cost. However you're left with finding a copy of the Win XP on your own.

 

Virtual Box is a good opensource VM package. I've even run Windows 3.1 in it. Even managed to find a copy of IBM's OS2 Warp 4 and got that to install and run too. If IBM and Microsoft had their act together we would all be running OS2 instead of Windows.

Good to know. I still have a valid VWare from my days at EMC.
