That's the best, most efficient, and least complex method. You don't have your system specs filled in, so XP Mode may or may not be an option.
Not XP mode - Virtual Box. However, virtualization in the BIOS should be enabled.

I know...those are two separate options/methods. What I meant was, some people seem more comfortable using XP Mode than a third party app. If XP mode isn't an option for the OP, VirtualBox still is.
