My plan:
I have a ESXI server. There are 4 users in our finance.
I install only one windows7 on the esxi server.

Is that possible ? 4 finance client use only one win7?

    If you remote desktop onto the box, then only 1 person can log in at a time.  If they are logged in at different time, then each finance client can have their own profile.

    It is no different then having a single physical windows 7 box.  The only different is that it's running on virtual hardware vs physical hardware but the underlying limitations of Windows 7 are still the same

    To append to what paulsolov said, you would definitely be able to leverage what ESXi virtualization has to offer if you housed more than one Win7 guest (preferably, one for each finance user) in that one piece of hardware.
