Windows On Mac :: Setting Up Parallels Desktop 4.0?

Feb 7, 2009

I'm using my first MAC, an mini, and trying to install Parallels Desktop 4.0 for the first time. I've installed the software and I was starting to create my virtual PC, but the screen came up with a message telling me it would allocate hard drive space and I got scared and stopped the installation. I'm worried about how much hard drive space it's going to take up. I was expecting to be able to tell Parallels to use 20 gigs of my hard drive (or something like that). But the last thing I want is for it to use all of the free hard drive space and then I'm out of luck. I've always been a PC user and since this is my first MAC, I sure don't want to screw it up.

Applications :: Drag Windows To Edge Of Desktop And Auto Resize?

Aug 31, 2010

Those that have Windows 7 should know what I'm talking about. You can drag your application windows to the edge of the screen and Windows will automatically resize your window to take up half the screen. You can then do it with another window on the other edge and have 2 50/50 windows open. Anyone know of software that will allow me to do this on my Mac?

Windows On Mac :: VMware Fusion 3 Vs Parallels Desktop 5

Jun 15, 2010

I wanted to to know and make a post comparing VMware Fusion 3 and Parallels Desktop 5 with the new updates. Which one is better in running multiple OSs at the same time. Do they support hypervisor. Cause i want to create a virtual environment to learn Server 2008 and Mac Os Server. Which one would be better to use VMware Fusion 3 or Parallels Desktop 5. As I said before I want this thread to be used to compare the two programs so if anybody else has question post them more question the better, of coarse if we get answers.

Windows On Mac :: Bootcamp, Parallels Desktop 5 Or VMWare Fusion 3 - Which Is Best

Dec 26, 2009

I am an architect and I will be mostly using my new imac to work on Autocad 2010 along with a couple of other windows based applications. I understand the concept of the three methods of using windows but I do not know which would provide the best performance whilst working on Autocad, without it becoming a laborious task to load it up everyday.

I will be rocking dual monitors so I quite like the idea of Parallels or VMWare so that I can have Windows open on one monitor and Leopard on the other. But will this have a negative effect on the performance of Autocad? Also, which of these two is the better?

Windows On Mac :: Parallels Desktop Or VMWare Fusion For Windows 7 RC?

May 7, 2009

I'm having pretty bad difficulties with Windows 7 and Parallels Desktop. I know it's not supported yet, but some folk have it working. I can boot up, but I can't install Parallels Tools. I changed the Configuration to "Windows 2008 Server" like someone suggested in another forum, but fails to boot up.

Seems like VMWare are offering a better helping hand than Parallels Desktop - and while it is not supported yet by them, they say that if you use Windows 2008 Server Config everything works apart from sound.

So am I best giving it a bash with VMWare's Fusion? 30-day trial for free. But I'd rather try get Parallels working since I paid for it.

Windows On Mac :: Installed Parallels Desktop Coherence - Taskbar Keeps Disappearing

Sep 21, 2010

Yesterday, I have downloaded Parallels Desktop to my Macbook Pro, and my brother brought a CD of Windows 7 to install there. At first, in the coherence mode, the taskbar was working amazingly until I turned off my computer. When I turned it back on, Windows 7 started to run, and the taskbar started to disappear and reappear after awhile. Then I restarted Parallels, then the taskbar completely disappeared. I have tried to modify its settings, and it still didn't work. So, I changed the coherence mode to window one, the taskbar was there. And then I changed it back to coherence, it disappeared again.

What should I do to get it back in the coherence mode?

OS X :: How To Move Files From MBP To Windows 7 Desktop

May 23, 2010

My parents just got a new Gateway desktop PC, and they want some music/movies. I have a ton on my MBP hard drive, so I just figured I could move the files over thru some way like firewire or something (both computers have firewire ports).

what would be the easiest? And would the fact that the harddrives are configured differently effect this? HFS to NTFS?

Windows On Mac :: VMWare Drag Lag In Parallels Distracting Startup?

Dec 1, 2009

I am currently using the trial of both programs to find out which I like best. There's two issues though:

- VMWare seems to have a drag lag in unity mode, whenever I drag a window, I can see the background from the windows desktop behind it, it doesn't seem to refresh fast enough. Is there a setting for this? This is on the newest 27 inch i7 imac, so that certainly should be fast enough not to have this kind of annoying problem. Resizing a window also goes somewhat slower than I would expect.

Jun 14, 2012

Yesterday I found that I can't drag and drop any files on my desktop. I get the white circle with a line through it when I try to drag anything.

Sleep / Wake

Relaunching Finder

Checking the Dragging option in Universal Access

Checking all of my settings in preferences

(I don't have Air Display, Airparrot or any of the other listed problematic 3rd party programs)I even reinstalled Lion and the problem still exists?

OS X :: Folder Jumps Across Desktop When Using Drag-and-dropped?

Jan 31, 2010

When I drag-and-drop a jpeg from a website into a desktop folder, the folder physically "leaps" several inches out of position toward the center of the desktop. This is strange...and annoying, because it makes the folder harder to reach with subsequent drags-and-drops.
