Virtual Servers for Testing Applications

I developed a windows application.  I need to test the install of the application.  I'm looking to install, then wipe the install and reinstall numerous times.  

What is the best way to do this?

Thanks

Thanks for the info.  Can this be done on a desktop or just on a server?  What software do I need to set up an VM environment to accomplish this?
