Last weeks I've been giving some demo's. When a prospect would like to see a demo, then ofcouse I create a demo (in a virtual machine) in which they can recognize themselves. Every client has their own requirements and therefore require an own VPC. I used to use a simple VPC which has Windows 2003, SQL server 2000 and CRM 3.0 and extend this default image for every demo.
But now I have another default image :o) It's an image which contains Windows 2003, SQL Server 2005, Visual Studio 2005, Sharepoint Portal Server 2003 and more.
Best of this demo vpc, is that it is available for free! You can download this from Microsoft's website:
Be sure to have enough diskspace though, unpacked this VPC is about 11 gigs huge!
