Since a few days I run APPS via a VMWARE virtual machine on my little laptop. Vision 11.5.10. And all data on an external disk.
With 1G of memory it is slow, but not too slow. Anyway, I ordered already an extra Giga RAM.
Summary till now: i love it, but it needs to be seen how handy this setup will be when i have to restore the virtual machine, a heafty 40G of unzipping.
Next step is to run Documentool on it. And publish the output. But we discovered some data corruptions in the Vision database, which needs to be worked around in Documentool.
I expected these corruptions. You see them on any project, and the Vision database is a very old, ongoing project.
