Present-V's stumbling block

Our team has succeeded in setting up a full fledge Present-V POC, which is somewhat similar to this Microsoft IT POC, albeit in a smaller way. We have also implemented smartcard for both authentication & secure email purposes.

During the process, we learnt that the biggest stumbling block is the applications to be delivered. Besides running on a Windows Server 08 platform, the application must be able to support multi-users and multi-sessions. We found out that virtualizing those ancient legacy applications (which were built for Win9x, single user and single computer) are near impossible when those application developers were either already gone or near retirement!
