The virtual machine is an emulation of a computer system. It runs your applications in an isolated environment top of your existing operating system. It’s actually a computer inside the computer. We can run applications in a virtual machine (VM) without affecting your laptop or desktop. Some of the computerized accounting packages and ERP systems (trial) such as Quickbook, MYOB, Tally, SAP gives several errors and installation failure. In such situation, sometimes we have to format the “C” partition or reinstall Windows.
If we install such an application in a VM, if it gives any error or unable to continue the installation, we can simply delete the VM and create a new one. No need to format or reinstall Windows.
Oracle VM VirtualBox installation and configuration simple. For the basic uses it’s not necessary to additional configurations. Although if you need additional customization, require few configurations.
