Hi
I would like to rent a Virtual Private Server on the cloud,it provides more power and Internet speed than a personal PC at home. A VPS is not attached to a physical server, several VPS share the same physical server; additionnaly if the server fails, the administrator moves your VPS to another physical server transparently for you.
but what about the WealthLab licence ?
as far as I know, WLab checks a hardware key, so a WL licence is linked to a physical PC.
is it possible to run WLab6 on a VPS ?
best regards

Hello,
Is there any further information available on running WL on Amazon EC2 or another cloud hosted Server?
Is there an application note of any sort available?
Thank you
Best Regards

Many a Wealth-Lab user run the product on their VPS servers around the world daily. What specific information do you need?

It turned out to be very straight forward.

I used Windows 2012 64-bit Server on an m1.xlarge instance in order to get 15GBytes Memory. This instance gives plenty of processing and network speed. I found the free instance memory footprint was too small for Wealth Lab and my needs.

If anyone has a better service recommendation that is robust, reliable, and low cost, then please let me know.
