    Hi Nicola,

    Thank you for putting together this versatile virtual box. I have already put it to use for a work Proof Of Concept.

    Please let me know if you aware of anyone who already has built a virtualbox image that includes forms and reports v12?

    If not, I’ll just build one on top of what you have already provided.

    Thanks, Nicola,
