Try and find 64-bit compatible variants.

Publish something like Virtual PC 2007.

Stream them with App-V (As long as they don't install drivers)

Install and older 32-bit server and publish / stream them from there.

Of them all, App-V (or ThinApp or other variants) are probably the easiest.

Although it's worth noting that if any apps instal drivers, then App-V etc/streaming won't work.

Sorry but I'm not really that hot on App-V requirements.

I know there are multiple components - the sequencer and management consoles for example, plus SQL is required, but whether these could be hosted on a single physical server or not I couldn't answer.

Ditto the costs of licensing - I would suggest a chat with your licensing provider might be a good place to start.

Sorry.

SQL is not a issue and im sure sequencer and management consoles can go on my managamnet server..

You used to be able to download a trial of it - might be worth investigating?
