Hi,

Find the url which talks on the compatibility of windows 2008 version on ESX servers and also find the KB articles mentioned which might cause an issue with windows 2008

coming to the application running with in the supported guest OS, I would suggest best to check with the application vendor on the kind of resource requirement for the application, one example I could give is IBM websphere which is not an good candidate, though it runs on an virtual machine provided adequate resource available on HOST and Guest OS
