I want to emulate some old desktop PC in order to run my application there (the emulated machine) as a stress test.
Is this possible? I looked around and some people mentioned Qemu, which is Open Source (cool).
Anybody ever tried to do this and succeeded? The idea is to create a virtual machine from existing hardware, OS included if possible.
I'm open to other suggestions besides Qemu
Update: I need 3D acceleration support. because my app uses DirectX. Microsoft Virtual PC, for example, does not support this. I looked around and it seems that VMWare Player does, so I'll give that a shot. About my app: It does heavy image processing, including multiframe images, so performance is very important
