With the software, one has the added benefit of running more than one operating system on separate environment without the need to reformat the hard disk or create different disk partitions. Application files created in the different environments are not affected in any way when changing or switching the OS to use thus more flexibility and power to the user.
Tips to install and run the software
First and foremost, considerations need to be put on the user system hardware requirements. The system resources required to support the program are Intel® or AMD® processor, 512 MB of RAM on the minimum but greater this is recommended for smooth execution, 30 MB free hard disk space for the installation process. In case the OS is not a 64-bit, the user can try installing service pack 2 to bridge the gap. These requirements are important to ensure that the system performance is not hindered in any way by the running of the software.
The set-up installation file can be obtained by downloading the latest version from the developer’s website and saving to the hard disk or any removable storage disk. To initiate the install process, double-click on the file and follow the wizard installation process to the very end.
Before installing the application, it is vital to note the type of version downloaded, and whether it can support the current operating system platform. If a version intended for a different OS is used on windows, error messages i.e. "failed to create VirtualBox COM object Callee RC: 0x80470007" keeps displaying on the screen with a subsequent bug report. In some cases, the application does not recognize the graphics card in the system.
