    take a look:
    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.vmware.view.client.android

    i see it can run windows 7,but is it streaming it through the network or is it installed on it :thinking:

    if VMware can actually run windows 7......then this mgiht be my next tablet,i just got one question does it require wifi or something to work.......

    to my understanding,i should be able to install windows through VMware correct?
    can anyone confirm it works like in the video :D

    I just watched the video you linked to. It looks to me that you are not actually installing windows on your tab, but using it to control another machine,virtual machine. This would be similar to when I call tech support at work and they log in and take over my computer remotely. I am not sure if I am correct, but would be interested to find out for sure. I have used other virtual machines and like them. It allows me to access my laptop from my tab. Makes things a bit more convinient.

    yeah but what confuses me is that it says "Virtual machine"
    what i'm getting at is you open a virtual OS from your PC.....
    anyways here's the PDF for instructions:

    if you get it to work tell me what you did please :)

    You're not running Windows 7 on your tablet.

    IF you have access to a server running VMware, you can host a virtual session on your tablet.

    You could possibly set up a version of VMware on your PC and have it run as a server. But you're probably better of just using a remote control software to access that desktop machine.
