Prepare for Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 W1 Virtual Machine

We are looking forward to providing our partnersa new demo environment, which is different from what we have released before. Starting with Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 W1 VM (virtual machine), we are moving to the new technology for virtual machines, namely Hyper-V. While offering you multiple advantages, the use of Hyper-V images needs preparation. This may involve the upgrade of your hardware since Hyper-V images can only run on Windows Server 2008 R2, which is a 64 bit operating system. Please read the information on this page carefully to be prepared. Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2 W1 VM will be available late this year.
