    I have only limited experience with VirtualBox , I install VM mainly on my customers servers, I use Vmware V-Sphere and ESXI or Hyper-V in failover cluster ( 2 or 3 servers sharing the same storage) , for this reason I have a full lab of Vmware and Hyper-V stuff, Vmware workstation is the professional choice for VM you host on a desktop,

    Hopachi, it sounds like vitualbox or vmware are what I need since they are simple and work with32 bit. Do you have a preferance? cheap and simple but good are my only criteria lol

    I don't know where is your problem, I never say it will be better, I just bring an option, actually it's Jimbo the first who talk about it. If you go on Eggxpert forum and RoG forum, you will see that I never force or insist on a product, I give my neutral opinion all the time. this is why I like Apple, Windows , Linux, Nvidia, AMD , Intel

    That's not true I have sound Using RDC on a Hyper-V on the same Windows Host , Remote Desktop as no way to know the VM is running on the Host
    In that case, i'm curious to see how you connect with RDC because in my case I can't. I read that it's not possible but my source can be mistaking...

    As I said, VMware Player should be easier to setup. Use what you like.
    I provided the link in a previous post.

    Note : VM Ware Workstation should not be installed on a computer that has Hyper-V installed.

    I think i wiil uninstall Hyper-V, 3D accelerator is more interresting for old games.

    I'm a user of simple software virtualisation. You seem to be an expert in server/enterprise virtualisation.
    There is no problem. Everything is clear now. You provided some useful links there, I appreciate that. There's always something new to learn.

    The same goes for me.

    There's no need for us to argue.
    We're just trying to help people on the same matter.

    Have a good day.
