It would probably work if you were to install XP ass a Virtual Machine in your Vista box. Run a search for that procedure and read it through before deciding whether or not to take it on. Like any written instruction, it will look complicated but it's not in reality.

My second thought led me to search e-Bay where I found I could buy an old PC running XP Pro SP3 for around £20 GBP.

I just checked with Amazon and found version 10 and it works with XP SP3 and Vista. Is it possible you have the files on disk but not the programme? If that's the case, you need to buy it and start again but your files will work.
