deploying a virtual demo

I want the ability to send a single file to my remote staff to upgrade their laptops with our latest demo versions. The 'virtualized' environment file must contain our application server, a database server and the client, along with all the configured application and data files. I've tried MS Virtual PC and found it slow and exhibiting odd latency in mouse tracking. Are there other alternatives for my specific need?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The other big player in the virtualization space is VMware. You can install the VMware player on the remote staff’s machine (which is a free download fromVMware.com). Then you would only need a single VMware Workstation license for who ever will be the one creating the Virtual Machines to send out.

I use VMware (I use Workstation, not the VMware Player) to run up to 6 Windows 2003 machines on my laptop (I have 3 Gigs of RAM installed in my laptop) and have no issues what so ever. (My laptop is running Windows Vista Business.)
