We tried some solutions which included running a virtual machine with an old OS on a newer machine, but nothing worked completely. In the end, it was cheaper to get a Silhouette Cameo than to pay $600 for an upgrade to my software.

I will be posting a tutorial of how to do this at a later date, but here is a quick sneak peek at my first vinyl project in years.
