I'm having trouble with the impersonation account. The fat client works fine. Did you follow the recommended procedure for creating the impersonation account or can you direct me to resources that can give me alternative ways to create this account? I'm a newbie.
The performance is worse on 2008, but _all_ performance is worse, so that doesn't really mean anything. As far as configuration, I can't really remember, I've been installing act for web since it came out, the installation documentation isn't something I refer to often. The impersonation account has to be a member of local admin, if I recall correctly, that's the only caveat, that and asp.net has to be enabled in IIS.
With desktop operating systems, I can see how MS gets away with it - but with a server OS, you'd think the potential user market would be more demanding.
I thought you could install reduced "task specific" versions of the OS to improve performance?
Have you found any advantages other than the included virtualisation hypervisor?
Re virtualisation, as I was an IBM engineer in the early 80 and they have had virtual machines for nearly 50 years, it's strange to see how the industry has come full circle, but still acts as though it's so new :-)
