I want to achieve following: (Note I'd like to get this done first of all with Win7 as both host and vm OS)
- Install Windows 7/xp/Windows 8 VM on Windows 7/Windows 8 host machine
- Configure it so that I can connect to it via remote desktop.
This is because I use a screen reader software and audio output directly from VMs is not highly responsive. My software has a feature that it can connect to its copy on the remote machine (during rdp session) and then start receiving the text description which it translates into audio on the client (host in this case) machine.
I want to know:
- Which VM software can let me do this – VMWare/Ms Virtual PC or VirtualBox
- If it is possible with every VM software, could you give an example of how to do this with anyone of these 3? Specifically, I know how to install Windows on VM (on both VMWare/Virtual PC), but don't really know how to configure a network such that I can remote into that VM from host OS.
Hope it clarifies what I'm trying to achieve.
