We have a customer with a custom cad software based on Autocad 2005 (OEM edition I think, as they don't have the actual Autocad installed). The customer doesn't want to upgrade this software (and Autocad too) to the new 2008 version. The problem is that the software house that developed the custom software state that Autocad 2005 and their software is not gonna work on Windows Vista. I trust that this is true, so we decided to install it on a virtualized version of Windows XP. At this point they said that Autocad 2005 can't run over a virtual machine for license restrictions. I have looked for this on the internet but I can't find any useful information about this issue. Is it true? Can I install Autocad 2005 on a virtualized Windows XP or not?
Thank you in advance for your help
