This Refresh2 image contains a range of new software updates that the field and partners can use to demonstrate and evaluate Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009. Including but not limited to:
Make sure you read through the release note that is on the download page and watch the videos for how to setup the VMs.

The Refresh 1 is available still on this link: https://mbs.microsoft.com/partnersource/deployment/methodology/vpc/presalesdemokitmdax2009Refresh1
Always appreciate the feedback I get from partners, and trust that you will get a lot of value from this update.
I believe that if you run the VPC of a XP machine, it will (as with Win7) also cause the machine to think the hardware has changed.
Is it possible to make the “Setting up external networking on the Demo VMs” video available to be downloaded (so that I can distribute it to my colleagues)?
I'll get the videos uploaded to partnersource so you can download. Check on the VM page
Early next week.
