I have a customer who has an old Windows XP PC running some cash till software and has a thermal printer (epson M129C) and cash till attached to it via a serial port.
I am replacing the PC with a new machine and they are also having new cash till system installed very soon.
I need to keep the old POS system working on the new PC. I thought that converting the PC to a Hyper-V system and then running it on the new PC using Client Hper-V for a few weeks might be a simple way of doing this.
My question is would the till/printer work in this situation.
