Both products support 32-bit and 64-bit Operating Systems including Windows and Linux platforms. You will need to choose the product that is compatible with the OS platform you are using.

After installation, you need to provide a minimum 2-page synopsis of your experience along with screen shots of your virtual environment. (The screen shot does not count in the length of your document.)
