I think I managed to get the Adaptec USBXchange driver to install in later 32-bit Windows. How did you try installing it? I definitely managed to get the SCM USB-SCSI driver to install in a Windows 10 32-bit VM, so it is possible to force installation of older drivers which weren't specifically developed for more recent Windows versions.

See [ Show youtube player ]. Skip to the 3:05 point.

Basic steps:
  • Open Device Manager (from System Control Panel)
  • Right-click the entry for the device you want to install the driver for and choose "Update Driver Software..."
  • Choose "Browse my computer for driver software" then "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer"
  • There should be a "Have Disk" button. Click that then browse to the directory where you unpacked the driver files (.sys and .inf files)
  • Hopefully that should install the driver.
Also see the "To locate the .inf file and manually install the driver" section in Microsoft KB927524.

Edit to add: Even if you have the USBXchange, download and install the USB2Xchange driver instead. That's a later version and works with both USBXchange and USB2Xchange.
