I would doubt they would work, but you can easily just run a small virtualbox / vmware / xen vm if you needed to fire them up.

You might want to make use of your CAPS LOCK key in future. You (probably) paid good money for it.

Talking

Thanks for quick answer, but I don’t quite understand terms like "virtualbox / vmware / xen vm" (I’m ) can you tell me where to find this programs and how to use it. Do I have to install windows to use them? If so it will not work for me because I mast not have illegal software and I would have to buy windows what I don’t want.

And sorry for caps lock, won’t happen again

Which Linux do you recommend for business?

Thanks again!

Google would have told you want vmware was if you'd looked. But yes they would require windows. You might get them working using Crossover or wine, but seems doubtful that it'd work. I don't know too much about windows software development, but those programs look like they were built with some clunky libraries which you'd need to have installed in a suitable environment in the first place, VB maybe..? You can always just try...

I recommend which ever one the business is most comfortable using. RedHat would be a pretty obvious default choice, but then not if you're doing windows compatibility stuff like you might be needing to, as that benefits for much more community involvement, which can be significantly harder under the more formal distros like RedHat.
