Can we get more details about how Version 7 supports VMWARE?
We have a number of issues with version 6 in VMWARE, like if the VMWARE environment is clustered and the machine is moved form one server to the other due to load balancing, Planet Press gets a new Magic Number and has to be relicensed. Is this problem fixed in Version 7?

I don't think this really is a problem, it's more the way the activation works. If there's a change in the machine's hardware configuration or in the case of a VM, it's location or configurations, it could affect the magic number, just like changing the hardware on a computer could change it as well.

Hi rpoenaru,

Any version of PlanetPress fully supports VMWare Workstation software. The actual VMWare server environment is also fully supported with 1 exception. The hardware must remain static. We do not support load balancing between different physical servers, especially if they do not have exactly the same hardware configuration.
