I have a windows 2000 server that we need to install quickbooks 2009 onto. I tried using virtual pc to run an XP machine inside of it but it kept dying  on me. so I tried VMWARE server. now it runs like garbage. the host machine has 2 gig's of memory. Is there anything else I can try or do I need to just get a dedicated workstation to run quickbooks? we are running quickbooks 2009 enterprise also if that helps

You are much better to use a dedicated workstation to run Quickbooks. You can still keep the ledger file on the server. Be sure to install the QB Server Manager on the Server. I have done this with Server 2003, but I think it should work on Server 2000.

Now, why are you running Enterprise. Having run it and evaluated it, it is really for more than 5 users. QB2009 Premier is fine for 5 users or less. ... Thinkpads_User

How big is your company file?
I have an company file bigger then 600 MB.
And Quickbooks 7.0

The upgrade from 5.0 to 7.0 made quickbooks as slow as hell on the old servers.
We had to purchase all new state of the art server to let it perform anything close to the old 5.0 setup.

There using the Sybase database like its a flat file system.
I hope for you they solved that in the new 2009 version.
