We have just ordered the new i-7 Servers for MS Access 2013 / SQL Server development and plan to use Windows 8 with Office 2013.
There was a Microsoft Demonstration a couple of months ago. He used Office 8 Enterprise on a portable to run a VM - with SQL Server / Web services and the MS Access development suite all at once.
For us Solution Provider developer types, is there a MAP set of instructions on how to set this up?
We are anxious to put the new technology to work. Instructions on a Development suit would be really useful.
