I am new to Cloud computing. I developed a VB5 application 20 years ago That I would like to offer as an app on Azure if possible. So I started to created a Windows server 2012 VM (Windows 8), my application doesn't not install on it as expected. I am using it myself in VMware on my Windows 1o computer. So I installed VirtualBox in that VM to created a Windows XP VM into it as this site suggest: https://allthingscloud.info/2016/10/04/running-windows-xp-in-azure/ I succeeded in doing so ![72655-vm-in-vm.jpg][1] but I barely get any response from the Windows XP VM, I cannot even install my application let alone using it after that, so it is a useless environment. Is there something I am doing wrong? Alternatively is it possible to boot directly an Azure Windows XP VM? Thanks you [1]: /api/attachments/72655-vm-in-vm.jpg?platform=QnA
