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?
