(i want to open complex applications) like this i want to be able to open this software from a no. of computers connected to computer one(server machine) through lan i want to how to do this using VMWARE or any other programming language used! can u please explain me how to do it?

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

You will have to configure bridged networking on the virtual machines, so you can assign an individual ip address to each one of them, and access them as if they were other physical machines on your network.

    What you are trying to do isn't use virtual machines, but sounds more like you need to deploy Citrix, or AppV. VMware as an application virtualization product, I just can't remember what it is.

    After reading your question again, and Denny's answer, I think he was right and maybe what you are wanting to do is application virtualization. If that is the case, then the answer provided in the Answer Wiki does not apply. As mentioned above, bridged mode will allow you to assign individual ip addresses to your virutal machines to be able to access them as if they were physical machines on the network, nothing more. If what you are trying to do could be done using physical machines, then you could do it using VMs in bridged mode, otherwise you might need another product such as the ones mentioned by Mrdenny.

    NO i want the virtual machines to reside on a different computer connected to LAN and access them i.e. start the virtual machine which is on different computer using lan i should get the output i.e. execution of that virtual machine on my computer. (my computer is client and the virtual machine resides on server computer)

    Well, you could open a remote console to manage the VM, but applications will be running on the remote virtual machine (not on your machine), and you will just 'see' them running.

    It sounds like you want to put the VM images on a shred storage (your file server) and fire them up on a local desktop (your, let's say, client). Am I right? I don't see why you can't run VMs like this...

    [...] 8. Carlosdl, Mrdenny, and Petkoa gave some pointers for running an application over LAN using VMware virtual machines. [...]
