windows FD هي اختصار Windows Functional Developer وقد وجدت لك هذه الفقرة (بالإنجليزي)
Windows 95/98/Me are not really suitable for use as a development
platform. They crash far too easily and their support for debuggers,
etc. is weak compared to that of Windows NT/2000. We (i.e., Functional
Objects) do all our development work on either Windows NT or Windows
2000 and Functional Developer is quite stable on those platforms.
At the moment, Functional Developer does not appear to be compatible
with Windows Me and we've been unable to resolve the problems as yet.
But, even if we did, Windows Me is still too fragile to be used for
(We've done preliminary testing against pre-release versions of Windows
XP and it appears that Functional Developer is compatible. However,
until we can test against the released version, we can't guarantee that
we'll be OK.)

I've done testing with Virtual PC 4.02 for Macintosh and I'm sorry to
report that Functional Developer isn't compatible. Using Windows 2000
under Virtual PC, the Developer crashes with integer overflow errors
that do not occur running under Windows 2000 on a real PC. Presumably,
this is an emulator bug.
I've also tried the just released Virtual PC 4.0 for Windows. I've
used it to run Windows XP as the guest OS on my PC and Functional
Developer appears to work. However, when I tried it with Windows Me as
the guest OS, the Developer would crash in ways that, I'm told, do not
occur when running under Windows Me on a real PC. (However, as I don't
have any detailed reports on the failures under Windows Me on a real
PC, I can't yet blame Virtual PC for Windows.)
