    How do I create a virtual Windows XP machine with USB support under Windows 10 Pro 64-bit?

    I have a new system running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit. I want to install a virtual Windows XP machine on this system, and I want to be able to use USB ports on this virtual machine.

    Reading about Hyper-V in "Windows 10 Inside Out", it says on page 766 "USB devices work only in enhanced session mode". On page 767, it says "Enhanced session mode requires a guest operating system that supports it". Windows XP is not listed as an OS that supports enhanced session mode.

    Can I get around this limitation of Hyper-V by using either the free version of VMware Workstation Player or Oracle VM VirtualBox instead? Is there a better way to do this?

    Oracle VM VirtualBox supports USB. You will also need the extension pack.
