Our uncle let us fix their HR System (Human Resource System), and we gathered these problems: (The problems to be presented must be only fixed by automation(computer program))
They have a very old hardware (since 1999) for the system, the Server is running Windows NT 4.0 Server and to be able to access it they have a client, Windows NT running in a virtual machine, with HOST OS of windows 98 (since 1999).
They have a very old printer (since 1999) attached to the client computer. The model/brand is Kyo Cera. The printer has a parallel connector.
Our real problems are:
1.1 Does Windows NT 4.0 compatible to newer computer builds, so we can just install the OS in there?
1.2 If not, what causes it? Is there a limitation for the OS to be installed?
1.3 Is the printer compatible to newer computer builds together with the client OS?
1.4 For illustration purposes of our propose solution: We may assume that:
we now bought:
-new computer with windows 7 OS
-new printer(usb) .
Is it possible to have/ run properly and smoothly a Windows NT 4.0(client) in a virtual machine like "Virtual Box" with a HOST OS of windows 7?
1.4.1 Can the virtual OS access the windows NT 4.0 Server and read/write data to it?
Can the virtual OS access the new printer and be able to print? .
