The way that people frequently deal with legacy software long-term is to take a snapshot of a working set of all the software required to make something run (the OS, the content, the offline Flash Player), and make a virtual machine out of it.  You're then depending on the underlying virtualization technology to stay abreast of any changes in the OS or hardware that might prevent the legacy software from running.

Hey jeromiec83223024

 

I am super interested in this from your reply above: 

take a snapshot of a working set of all the software required to make something run (the OS, the content, the offline Flash Player), and make a virtual machine out of it.

I am trying to figure out the best way to go about this for our application.  Does Above have any guidance or best practices for this type of setup?
