We are exploring the possibility of migrating a handful of sales staff from PC to Mac. We have a single custom database application; which is Progress Database based, that only runs on PC. Currently, there isn't a Mac client available of the Progress Database software.

My question is, can we run a Mac desktop and only publish this one application using vmware or do i have to run do i have to run the application from a full pc desktop using vmware? In Citrix, i know it's possible to publish a single application, and i'm hoping that same functionality is available with a virtualization product such as vmware.
