Is Hardware Virtualization Necessary?

Ask the Doctor LogoI am running 32-bit Windows 7 and I have a CPU that does not support hardware virtualization. I need virtualization software that does not require Intel VT, and was wondering if you had any recommendations. I have heard of VirtualBox but I’m not sure if you need VT support. Does VMWare have any products that don’t require hardware virtualization?
