HI Guys,
I am looking at control system upgrade paths and have posted on the other forums. I am looking at options of delayig the need to upgrade the project software for a few years. I want to know of your experience with finding companies that make them and If you can recommend any companies? I also want to know what experience you might have of using VM ware type software to run high speed control systems?

Hi JR,

Are you talking Windows 2000 server or Desktop Professional?

I've had some experience of writing software packages using VMware type software in a process environment, if you drop me some details of type of software and control and system by email, or give me a call, I'll see what I can find for you.

Best Regards

I believe that Windows 2000 is version 5.0, Windows XP is 5.1, Vista is 6.0 and Windows 7 is 6.1.

Windows2000/XP are very much the same operating system but an updated GUI in XP. Similar situation for Vista / Windows7!

Windows 7 supports virtual PCs natively there is an article all about running XP here

This might help...
