I have been converting a lot of customers to Apple in the last 10 years, and now more then ever. One problem I run into with installing QB onto a virtual machine is .NET framework. .NET is embedded into Windows 7, so all updates must be performed before installing QB. If you make the mistake of installing before updates, you may loose the ability to see the CD/DVD drive or image. The simple fix isn’t a restart but a shut down of the virtual machine.
