Supported Virtual Environments
Important note on virtual environments
Starting with version 7.5.1, PlanetPress Suite is able to detect a number of virtual environments in addition to the ones listed above. To check whether your own virtual environment is properly detected, just launch PlanetPress Design and look at the main window's caption bar. If it states PlanetPress Design for your_virtual_environment, it means the virtual environment was successfully detected, which in turn means that PlanetPress Suite should not run into de-activation issues caused by rebooting the server or moving the virtual image to another server. Note, however, that successful detection of a virtual environment not listed above does not mean it is officially supported. It simply means that if the virtualization server does a good job of virtualizing (!), then there's no reason the application should not behave the same as when running on a physical server, but that Objectif Lune has not yet been able to certify the application runs properly under that specific environment. 
In addition to the list above, the following environments should be detected properly (but are not yet officially supported): Virtual-PC, VirtualBox, Parallels, KVM, Xen, Bochs-based and Wine.
