I have a small network (windows Server 2012r2 Domain) and need to run on 10 workstations one application wich runs (well) only on Windows XP.

I was thinking of running a windows xp VM and connect to it from the workstations, wich are running windows 7-8-10.

What are the options?

You may try Oracle VirtualBox. I use it quite a lot. For server use (e.g. headless mode) see section 1.16 in this doc.

  • Thank you but I was looking for something simpler, like Thinstuff, it would have been perfect if it was compatible.
