I ordered VIDA/DICE and have a windows 7 Professional operating system. I also have a copy of windows XP Proffesional. I looked at VMWARE Playwer and MS XP Emulator. Which emulation software would be the prefeered method of running XP to work with VIDA? If i use VMWARE player when i open the player to run XP will the desktop ICONS appear within the player. What is the sequence for installing VIDA to use with a XP emulator. Do i start the VMWARE player and XP then install the VIDA software or do i install VIDA under windows 7 and start the VMWARE player to run VIDA. Any help or recomedations are welcome.
