Virtual Machine Console Access only

Ive got an old application which Im trying to Virtualise. It works fine on Windows 98 so installed Windows 98 as a Virtual machine and works great, problem is I want 1 user to be able to access it, but none of the other machines.

Ive setup permissions for the user to be able to access but only have 3 roles to assign ('No-Access', 'Administrator', 'Read-Only'). In 'Read-Only' and 'No-Access' the user doesnt have access to the Console, and in 'Administrator' the user can modify all the settings.

Ive thought about the roles, but its greyed out.

I initially thought Remote desktop, but cannot use remote desktop in Windows 98, VNC and Teamviewer just die when the app starts up and goes into Dos mode.

Any ideas?

Go to the Home Screen in the vSphere client then click Roles under Administration.
Right click the white space and select add
Under Virtual Machine, Interaction, Check Console Interaction and name the role
Now assign this user with the new role you created to only the VM you want them to have access.
