No, it's not possible. Ipad is not suitable to run windows 7 on it, let alone a hypervisor with windows 7 inside it.

The closest you can do is use vmware view or xendesktop.
There are a number of remote desktop (RDP) clients available for the ipad as well. You would configure a Windows 7 desktop, physical or virtual depending on your environment, then use the RDP client to remote to the desktop and run your applications.
VMWare does have a client available for the iPad. It might not be really pretty, but it seems like its doable.

It looks like, in both of these cases, that you wouldnt be able to host the VM on the iPad though.

Yes this is called vmware view which I mentioned already.

Is it possible to give my users offline access to the Windows 7 VM?
Nagendra Pratap SinghDesktop Applications SpecialistCommented:
Yes but you need to buy a intel based tablet then!
TabrezShaikhAuthor Commented:
No i need to give them local windows 7 access without any LAN/WAN on their IPADs

This gentleman seems to have run Windows Vista on his iPad.

Teamviewer or LogMein should help you in that case without going for a dedicated VDI environment. You need to install the software on each system to which you want to provision access after which the user can login with the app installed on iPad.
vmwarun - ArunCommented:
@npsingh123 - The iPad may probably not scale up to the processing or memory requirements of hosting Windows 7 although it can access a Windows 7 hosted VM or physical machine using an app (Teamviewer or Logmein) installed on iPad or if a Windows 7 VM is hosted in a Citrix XenDesktop or VMware View environment.

I don't do ipads!

Also the user does not want a remote control solution.
vmwarun - ArunCommented:
The author wants to provide access to the desktop located on the LAN from anywhere (LAN/WAN). Both teamviewer and logmein can achieve this. The user would authenticate their OS credentials and login.

@arunraju No buddy i need to install windows 7 (VM) locally on IPAD and access it without any LAN/WAN connection.  Users sometimes may have or may not have access to local network or Internet still they should be able to access Windows 7 VM on their IPAD locally.  Hope it is clear now

BTW I wonder what is so special about Windows 7. I use only windows and never found a program on Mac which I could not manage on Windows.

iPad should have a reasonably close program for this.

It is not possible to run Windows 7 natively on the ipad.

You have two options as several of us have outlined above:

virtual desktop (vis. VM, Hyper-V, Citrix) or remote desktop (RDP or 3rd party remote control i.e. one of the tools listed above).

I should add that there are some hosted options for Windows 7 on ipad available but licensing is in question. Example:

This requires an active internet connection.

For Office, you could use office365/sharepoint as the web apps are supported (requires E2 level subscription for editing, E1 read-only) sure if you can create docs/files from there or just access existing files.

This OSX daily method is actually just a remote control. That too disputed!

Also one fine day 60 commandos will barge-in and take all the equipment and the fat admin and your data would be safe but would be referred as evidence!

@TabrezShaikh - Thanks for the clarification, buddy. As already posted by others, iPad can't natively support Windows 7 even as a hosted VM. You need to either take a look at Kavizza, XenDesktop or VMware View.
