Default [Help]FlashTool in Virtual Machine under win8.1 Host

Hello, since there is no workaround yet to install flashboot driver in windows 8.1 x64, so I thought if I can flash my XP in VMware.
I installed windows xp in VMware installed flashtool and drivers. but when flashtool asks to connect the phone, I connect it but Windows xp doesn't see it. The phone restarts almost immediately and boots up normally.

Now my question is, is it possible to flash my Xperia P from vmware? If yes, then what am I doing wrong?
Is there any way to flash my phone other than installing windows all over?
Thanks in advance.

No one of the replies has files for windows 8.1 x64.

Yes. Disabled driver sigining verification and then replaced the files in C:\system\windows32 and then instaled the driver. It succesfully installed all three drivers (Xperia P, adb and flashmode). But when I connect my Xperia P, Flashtool says drivers needed to be installed.

I've installed resurrection ROM by Abhinav2. It is great but the phone app lags a lot. I mean really lot. That's why wanted to go back to darkROM. But it is impossible to install DarkROM without installing Stock ROM first. Kinda stuck in ressurection ROM.
