Host System Requirements

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(2) The PC Server must support the instruction CMPXCHG16B

 

(3) .NET Framework Client Profile is required for product installation.

 

Quick start

 

To simplify the first experience with the emulator we offer a pre-installed guest system, which you can immediately boot in the emulator. This pre-installed system is Debian Linux. It can be downloaded at the download page. Note that Linux is a slow boot, but once booted it is fast. This is because Linux boot is CPU intensive and the CPU speed in this product is relatively slow.
