I am preparing to start using an Exchange Server on our network. As part of this preparation, I want to run some tests using Virtual PC. Can anyone tell me how Virtual PC deals with licenses? Will it use up one of my licenses if I install Exchange Server on Virtual PC? Thanks Nick

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

Hi Nick,
I have installed lots of different Windows Servers and apps, including Exchange, inside VIrtual PC/Server, and VMware.
Rarely have I had any licensing trouble demoing/testing apps.

I’ll tell you, the easiest way to try <a href=”http://www.petri.co.il/virtual_download_exchange_2007_virtual_machines.htm”>Exchange 2007 is to download the VHD test drive</a> directly from Microsoft. At that point, there is nothing to install, you just start it / run it, in Virtual PC. It is a limited time VM, I believe. Here is an article on that:

Here at TechTarget, there is a <a href=”http://searchexchange.techtarget.com/generic/0,295582,sid43_gci1278859,00.html”>great article covering Exchange 2007 licensing</a>.

I hope that helps.

    Thanks for this info. I am now downloading the Exchange VHD, and will hopefully be testing it out next week. Nick http://www.pc-citadel.com
