Re: How does one utilize the 4 Virutal Machines that you are entitled to with Windows Vista Enterprise?
Brian Drab - You are slightly confused. Virtual PC is "free" - keep in mind
reference to "PC". There is no OS included with "Virtual PC" - you must
install the OS. Each OS installation requires validation as if being
installed on a "normal" PC.
With Enterprise you can do four OS installations on four virtual PCS.
