Running AIX on Microsoft Windows / Intel plateform ?

Is it possible to run IBM AIX OS on Intel/Msft_windows plateform? If it is possible, what third party application need to install on windows in order to run AIX?

Please advise.

Mission impossible.
Because AIX doesn't support Intel architecture.

As first effort you will need to discuss such idea with your IBM sales representative... (30pt answer)

It is possible to put together gcc cross-compiler to make AIX software on any platform where gcc runs, but this is highly above 500pts. (50pt answer)

He is actually looking for a layer on top of the Intel system in order to run AIX itself :-)

The bottleneck is that AIX doesn't support Intel architecture.
So far there is no AIX-x86 version....

I've checked VMware when I read your question first time.
Unfornately, there do not support AIX. The reason is still the same: AIX doesn't support Intel architecture.
VMware is based on Intel architecture. Same thing to Mircosoft Virtual PC.

Just trust me, there is no way to run AIX 'directly' on a Intel platform; there is no emulator that will allow you to run on a 'virtual' PPC.
