I have a customer that has an old program run on three old computers that are running on a wing and a prayer. They would like to continue to use this software. They cannot find the installation disks to reinstall on new hard ware. The manufacturer no longer has the media either or anyone competent in this old version. I thought maybe we could virtualize the drives and run the program this way. Can virtual machines on different pc's on a network access each other across the network? I setup a lab on a couple of Win10 computers with Hyper-V Win7 clients and they don't see each other. Do I need more than workstations like Win10 to do this?
