The Question is:

I want to test my DCL procedures on a non-production system, e.g. a PC running
 Windows 98, 2000, or NT.  How do I do this?  We have a cluster of Alphaserver
 8400's running OVMS 7.2-1H1 and we do not have a test system.  Can I run OVMS
 on an INTEL based ma
chine, or do I have to buy an Alpha-station?
Thank you.

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard would recommend acquisition of a small AlphaServer
  or AlphaStation system (new or used equipment) for purposes of testing
  and prototyping.  Alternatively, borrow time on another OpenVMS system.
  OpenVMS operates only on VAX and Alpha hardware.
  The OpenVMS Wizard is not in a position to predict success with OpenVMS
  on a third-party platform or on a PC pr other platform emulation, nor to
  predict success with a PC-based DCL emulation.
