VirtualRPC in Use - Third edition (2018)

November 2018 - You can now download a Free copy of the fully revised and updated 3rd Edition of the 'VirtualRPC In Use' e-book. It's timed to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the launch of VirtualRPC. The 86 page e-book replaces all earlier versions of the booklets authored by T.O.M.S. and available from Archive Magazine and this Support page prior to November 2018.

This 3rd Edition aims to update and expand the content of previous versions, with particular reference to the improved range of ARM-powered solutions and Mac/PC host computers, plus additional considerations when running VirtualRPC under Windows 7, 8 and 10.

The A4/landscape double-page spread is retained for ease of viewing the PDF file. All the page numbers on the Contents page and all links throughout the booklet are live, so clicking on each one will turn to the selected page (or return to the Contents page), open the relevant web page URL, or open a blank email page.

Should you wish to print a colour or monochrome copy as an A5-sized booklet (or have your local print shop run off a copy for you), you will need the PDF print files which are available on request from the authors Steve Johnson and Jim Nottingham on


Supplements to VirtualRPC in Use (2011 to 2013)

Following the publication of the second edition of the main booklet T.O.M.S. prepared a series of Supplementary articles which were published monthly from January 2011. These articles were collated into a separate booklet in 2013. This is also available as a free download PDF file.

Readers should note that, although almost all of the 2011-13 Supplements booklet is still valid, some content and illustrations (e.g. Windows XP material) may have become outdated. So where there is any discrepancy or anomaly, the content of Edition 3 of the main VirtualRPC in Use ebook takes precedence. The authors hope to update the Supplements booklet when time allows.
