As all the Panto's are quickly approaching, I've been trying to get my Mac to work as a strand remote console, based on the document here that says I can quite happily use virtual PC to make a wonderful remote console. The problem I'm having is that I can't find any copies of Virtual PC 4,5 or 6 and when I've tried installing on other virtual computers it just hasn't worked... I managed to get a copy of Virtual PC 2004, which is running inside parallels on my mac, but that just won't boot the actual geniusp.bat or cios files to start the console. When I tried to install on a standard parallels vm, then parallels wouldn't let me allocate enough RAM because it was a dos machine and when I tried VMware, I couldn't find the right network drivers....
I was just wondering if anyone had any experience trying to do this install and whether or not anyone had ever managed to make it work?
I know I could try and buy the xConnect dongle, but I don't know of anywhere I can get one (even though I only need it for a couple of weeks!) and can't really afford it!
Thanks for all your help guys!
