You can access Wdesk and Wdata via virtualized environments. Virtualized instances, published applications or desktops of the Wdesk or Wdata application must meet the existing System Requirements.
There are numerous virtualization solutions available and numerous possible configurations. Although we cannot guarantee a particular configuration will work when combined with your specific environment, we have tested various configurations with success internally, which can be found on the table below.
