    "Good, but hard to read"

    May 30, 2013   |   By Wolfmont

    Version: VirtualBox 4.2.12


    Runs the software I have tried to run
    Doesn't require an install of Windows
    Uses WIn XP (a stable version of Windows)


    Screen is SMALL!


    While this was useful for loading and running some Windows software on my Mac, the screen display for the Windows VM is so small that I have to strain to read it. I have not been able to find a way to make the screen bigger.

    "worked perfectly"

    Version: VirtualBox 4.2.12


    allowed me to connect to my corporate website with its arcane firewall structure


    none of any significance


    if you can follow fairly simple instructions, this software will work for you
