Hi.

We have a client who wishes us to trial a piece of software before we distribute it on their network.

I don't want to do this on a our Test rig here so I want to run it on a Virtual environment.

We have Server 2012 Standard, foundation and Essentials.

Is VM software included in these OS's at all please.

Thank you
Andy

From the list above, only Windows Server 2012 Standard can be used as Hyper-V host.

Depending on the running requirements of the application, you might also take a look at the VMware products for server and desktop.  For example, here's a link for their workstation product. http://www.vmware.com/products/workstation/

If you have access to a Mac, VMware and Parallels make products to tun on the Mac which will allow you to run Windows as a VM.
