My client has a peer to peer network consisting of 4 pc’s running Windows 2000 pro. One of the pc’s died. He has legacy software which will only work on Windows 2000 pro. He has a new pc running Windows 7 pro. Obviously Windows 2000 pro cannot be loaded onto a 64 bit pc.l
1.) I understand how to construct a peer to peer network. It seems Virtualbox is free. If I installed Virtualbox onto the Window 7 pc, how would I configure Virtualbox so the other old pc’s can read / write to a share on Virtualbox? Somehow the network card on the Windows 7 pc has to communicate with VirtualBox.
2.) Will Virtualbox install on a Windows 7 pc and can Windows 2000 pro be loaded as a guest o/s on Virtualbox?
