ECC 6.0 EHP5 IDES is installed in Windows server 2003 64bit Enterprise Edition using VMware workstation and configured it for full time practice on different SAP modules. You can use this system to practice on different functional modules such as SD, MM, PP, FICO, PS, HR and technical modules such as ABAP and BASIS. Actual time required for installing this software in VMware will be around more than 2-3 days with minimum RAM of 4GB. I have installed this software and prepared virtual disk which can be used any number of times in any computer using VMware workstation software. The file extension of this virtual disk is .vmdk and the file size is 295GB. File size is huge either to upload or download. So I have zipped this file into 8 parts of zip files. So size of these files reduced to 32.2GB
Note: To run this virtual disk in VMware workstation, Your computer BIOS should have VT (Virtualization Technology) enabled. You can check for this option or call your vendor for support for enabling virtualization Technologies within the BIOS of your laptop/desktop/server.
