[RFI] Security of VPC on MAC

Discussion in 'Virtual PC' started by Dr. Greg Larsen, Feb 7, 2005.

  1. To anyone,

    I was just turned down for a purchase of VPC because someone (mystery
    person) claims that auto-pushing of Windows patches would NOT be possible
    (programs like patch link, etc.); and that the product would take control of
    the MAC and be an unsafe PC on the network.

    I believe ignorance is the term here... But can anyone independently provide
    confirmation that VPC does not reach into the core services layer and take
    control of the MAC AND does anyone know if the VPC emulation can be
    permitted to accept auto-patching? (Never tried it myself)

    Thanks in advance!
