  • OK, so let's make some assumptions because you've not shared anything with us about what you're trying to achieve and on what platform.

    Flash Paper 2 doesn't work so well on anything above Windows XP, so see this link for info about getting it working under WIndows 7: https://sites.google.com/a/imustknowsomething.com/flashpaper2-windows7/

    However Flash Paper has two components that will make virtualizing a challenge - activation and a printer driver. You won't be able to virtualize the printer driver (which is basically all that Flash Paper is) and it if you can virtualize it, it may require activating again once delivered to users.

    Bottom line - Flash Paper 2 is not a good candidate for any type of application virtualization.
