    Yes, as long as you have the key.

    Very important, make frequent backups of the Window 10 virtual machine vdi file.

    I thought these version were specially made for VM's.

    So Win 10 will still work if not activated?

    Is this a full Win 10 version?

    Of course, At least on Virtual Box (which i use), im not sure on VMware Workstation, i heard that you need a legit license.

    Pre-configurated Win10 Enterprise.

    I'm running Mint Cinnamon 19. I've installed Windows 7 in a vbox container. Windows 7 is all up to date, drivers and such. When I'm trying to play my purchased movies through Itunes, I get sound, but no picture. I've tried downloading codecs, but nothing seems to work. Do you think it's the vbox gpu driver can't handle this? I have 128mb of gpu memory dedicated to this .vdi.

    I'm using a Intel Nuc Skull Canyon.

    Specs:

    CPU: Intel Core i7-6770HQ Skylake-H
    RAM: 16gb
    SSD: Samsung 950 512gb EVO Series
    GPU: Intel Iris Pro Graphics 580

    You should not need any codecs for iTunes.

    Do you have the Guest Additions installed in the Windows 7 virtual machine?

    If you do, did you enable Direct3D Support (Experimental) when you installed the Guest Additions (disabled by default).

    When you check the box for Direct3D Support you will get a prompt (at least I do) asking if you want to install basic Direct3D support instead, the correct answer to that Yes/No prompt is "No", so it will install Direct3D.

    I don't have any movies to watch, but I played several trailers within iTunes and they a played perfectly.

    I never configure virtual machines with NAT, always use Bridged.
