CatTools will run on VM systems but you may need to adjust the setup of the VM in certain circumstances.


Setting the number of processors

You can configure VM's to use multiple 'virtual' CPU's, (based on the number of physical CPU's you have on your server). However, because CatTools spawns multiple clients this can actually slow down the operation of CatTools while the VM waits for physical processors to become simultaneously free. For best results you should therefore ensure that there is only 1 virtual CPU configured for for your VM.
