Unfortunately at this time I do not have access to a VM Windows * server so cannot give you screen dumps.

You have to understand that to everyone and everything, the VM server is a SERVER and looks and behaves just like any server except it is virtual. Once you install the VM server you can forget the part that it is a VM and treat it just like any other "physical " server.

VMWare creates a "virtal" server with the number of processors, memory, hard disks you provide it in its setup.

VFP apps will run in as little as 1 GB memory on the server but this is not the only criteria for a server. If you have other users using MSTSC to log in and are running Terminal services on the server, then you might need to pump it up to 8 to 16 processors, and give it 32 gb memory which will support about 90 users simultaneously.

At the very minimum, you'd need at least 4 processors and 8 gb memory with a HD of 50 gb and install Windows Server on this. When you enable Terminal Services, you can then get at least 8 users running simultaneously.

I suggest you read up on 2 things - Windows Server and terminal services and Setting up and configuring a VM Virtual server.

Google is your friend.
