Hi,

Just find back this thread.

I received from Microsoft a free Visual Studio Ultimate with MSDN, so, 
that's include a Windows free Azure account
with 1 UC 1 GHz, 768 Mb RAM, I don't know if it's enough to run a part of 
the tests, keep me in touch once you can run all of them on your VM, I might 
try to use a clone (*.vhd).

Let me know what you think.

-Fred

Subject: Re: Parallel Mustella runs

It should be possible to use the "disk" that contains my instance...
But it seems to involve either some low level API manipulation or the
purchase (trail?) of a piece of commercial software. I can look into
it later this week, right now I'm a bit busy on a "little" landscaping
project in our yard ;-)
