Virtual PC 2004 and RMS USB Dongle

Does anyone have any experience with Virtual PC 2004 and the RMS USB dongle.
I'm a reseller using a laptop for sales and demo purposes to display the
interaction between the HQ and Sore Ops. Since my laptop doesn't have an lpt
port, I must use the USB dongle and I know Virtual PC doesnt support USB and
has issues with the lpt dongles. My issue is I have to resetup RMS HQ on the
Virtual PC every three months when the trial ends. Anyone have any ideas
either to get around this or alternative ways to show the interaction?

Hi there sorry to hear that you have this problem. I have it as well.

Perhaps the VPC Newsgroups could well assist.

Jess,
we use VMWare for our HQ database (similar to Virtual PC 2004 I guess?) and
had a similar problem. We were informed that it was only possible to get USB
dongles now and VMWare does not support USB ports. Our soluton was to put the
HQ Server and the USB dongle on a physical server whilst leaving the database
on the virtual server. Since there are daily connections between HQ Server
and Database the dongle is 'seen' daily by the database and therefore does
not hit the 3 month time limit.

Thank you Ponzie for your response. I'm going to give it a try by installing
the HQ on the laptop and have it grab the data from the virtual server
hosting the SQL.
