I have a client who has an old PC and in order upgrade their PC they need to spend some $3.5K on their Accounting software in order to upgrade it to the latest version to work with Windows 7.

They are looking to change over to MYOB.

I am wondering if we get them a new Windows 7 PC, then purchase VMWare Workstation, can we create an image of their current old PC and resotre that image to a VMWare virtual PC on a new Windows 7 system?

Can anyone who has done this before let me know if this should work OK?

Thanks
