Doesn't necessarily work....I have an older, but perfectly servicable, Canon inkjet with no driver for 64-bit Windows 7, which will not work with the XP emulation on 7 (confirmed by Canon UK). Not much chance of Kodak providing new drivers a few years down the line, if Canon doesn't?
I think the major problem is the switch between 32-bit and 64-bit processors. I have an old printer that uses Polaroid Spectra film, but it only works with Windows ME (bleh) and older. It was fine using a Win98 VM with my old XP computer (32-bit), but when I moved up to a 64-bit CPU, all of the legacy equipment stopped working.
