    I have a new laptop and would want to play around Windows 2012 and Exchange 2013.

    I have downloaded both eval 6-month (Windows 2012 R2 and Exchange 2013).

    But the vmware station that I have is 8, and I fear it won’t support Windows 2012 R2 .

    So, I installed Virtual Box, but when trying to create a new machine, it won’t allow 64-bit guests operating systems.

    I checked my Intel processor with an utility and it says “VT” capable.

    Should I turn maybe to Virtual PC for these labs?

    Thanks in advance.
