          • The kit comes with a Virtual Machine that contains a trial of Windows 7 (32 bit) and Visual Studio 2010. Both the OS and Visual Studio are trial copies that require extending the trial periods. The OS is good for two further 30 day extensions after you first launch the VM, you can of course copy and unpack the VM as many times as you like. Use the command SLMGR /REARM to extend the trial period for a further 30 days – you can do this twice before the copy of Windows requires activation. The copy of Visual Studio is a 30 day trial that can be extended to 90 days. The 30 day period has expired so you will need to first click the link in the message that comes up when you first launch Visual Studio from the VM to extend the trial a further 60 days by entering a trial product key.
          • The VM is a Virtual PC 2007 VM. If you wish to use this VM with Windows 7 or in Hyper-V, you will first need to remove the Virtual PC additions (From Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel in the VM), then you can install the appropriate extensions in Windows 7 Virtual PC or in Hyper-V.
          • The training kit presentations, hands-on-labs and solution files for the labs come in the AppFabricTrainingKit.ISO file. You can mount this file to your VM directly as a DVDdrive (from settings -> DVD Drive) and then run the setup program to install the kit into your Virtual Machine.
          • If you are running the labs directly on a physical machine, then you will need to mount the ISO file using an ISO mounting tool (search the web for "ISO Mounting Tool").
