MLS Language/Install twice?

Postby wadeburt » Mon Mar 17, 2008 7:49 am

I need to have MLS in Spanish and in English - right now, I use 2 laptops, one with each version. Is there an easier way? Is there a way to put both on one laptop? Then I could split screen the two and put them up side by side.
I am doing a multiStake Spanish language Clerk Training session on MLS and need to have a good way to move between them.

I am a Spanish speaking novice, although I will have the assistance of Spanish speaking translators.

From previous threads, it seems like it won't work (that MLS assumes there is only one installation per machine). However, perhaps you can load up Virtual PC or VMWare Player and run a VM? Then again, maybe that's a bad idea if your hardware specs are those of a standard Ward machine.

MLS on virtual machines

Another free VM option is VirtualBox. I recently have been experimenting with Ubuntu on MS Virtual PC 2007 and VirtualBox and have come to like VirtualBox more. They both seem to put a similar load on the host in terms of performance and host OS (Vista Business) resources. But VirtualBox seems better in terms of hardware emulation, particularly with regard to video and mouse support.
