GEEK TO ME: Hanging on to discontinued software

Question: My favorite database program (AskSam 7) cannot be updated. Its developer in Perry, Florida went out of business years ago. I held my breath when installing it from its CD on my new computers (both Windows 10), but it has worked well. I am concerned that a Microsoft Windows 10 update will disable AskSam. If so, how can I find a compatible program? Will a virtual desktop as you recently described (Geek Note: I.G.T.M. Issue #616, May 12-18, 2019) for hardware enable me to continuing using this database?
