When using VM, I believe you are referring to Virtual Mode.

If that is the case, keep in mind that the Intel Core i7-2600 supports Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x)

And Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d) as showing at:

So due to the fact that the processor supports this feature, the software should work fine, if that is not the case, I would suggest contacting the software developer to see about the processor requirements for the software to run properly.
